Great Britain’s smart meter installation count for 2022 just passed 1 million after 184,000 installations were recorded in June. The year’s tally now stands at 1.18mn cumulative installations.

June’s installation figure is 12 percent less than May 2022 and 24 percent less than the same month last year.

Cumulative smart meter installations since 2012 have reached 18.4mn with the addition of June’s figure.

Regions with the highest installation rates include East England with 24,000 installations, Southern England with 20,000 installations and the East Midlands with 18,000. These three regions typically have the highest number of monthly installations in Britain.

NOTES:

These figures represent electricity smart meter installations in GB. Visit the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy’s website for the latest dual fuel smart meter reports.

The analysis is based on the D0150 data flows transmitted across our network and we believe capture the vast majority of electricity smart installs.

The users of the DTS have given ElectraLink permission to intercept and analyse this, and other data flows, subject to certain conditions.

Our analysis defines smart meters as those models with the capability to handle time of use tariffs and which can be remotely updated.

For installations after September 2013, we count all meters flagged as SMETS1, SMETS2 or non-SMETS. For installations before the industry standard designation was agreed, the allocation is based on the make and model of meter.
