Energy smart meter installations in GB in June increased significantly for the second month in a row. The 209,000 installations events went up by six percent compared to May 2023 and by 14 percent compared to the same month last year.

June’s installations total is the first month so far this year to overshoot the figure for the same month last year.

According to Ofgem’s most recent open letter to suppliers on delivery of the smart meter rollout, the regulator expects suppliers to do whatever is necessary to meet their annual installation targets until 2025, including seeking out additional resources and supporting vulnerable customers.

There have been 1.153mn smart meter installations so far this year compared to 1.181mn in the first half of last year.

Regional installations once again ranked in the same order. East England had 26,000 installations, the east Midlands had 23,000 and southern England had 20,000.

NOTES:

These figures represent electricity smart meter installations in GB. Visit the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero’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.
