The rollout of smart meters is making good progress, with over 400,000 meters being installed every month and 11 million meters operating at the end of March 2018, helping consumers to save money and better understand their energy use.

As of the end of May 2018, industry information showed there were just over 1,000 gas and electricity SMETS2 meters connected to the DCC system.

Energy suppliers are continuing to test their systems ahead of a controlled ramp up of SMETS2 meters in the coming months.
