The Government publishes quarterly reports on the number of smart electricity and gas meters installed in Great Britain as part of its Smart Meters statistics collection, which is available here: www.gov.uk/government/collections/smart-meters-statistics.
Our latest statistics show that as of the end of June 2019, 14.9 million smart meters in Great Britain were being operated in smart or advanced mode. 2.7 million smart meters in Great Britain were being operated in ‘traditional’ mode.
The upgrade to the national smart metering network to support the enrolment of first-generation smart meters is underway to enable these meters to operate in smart mode. This will happen automatically, without the consumer needing to take any action.
