The smart meter rollout in Great Britain kept a steady pace in September with 202,000 installations recorded.

September’s figure is three percent less than the same month last year and five percent less than the month before.

There have been 1.778mn smart meter installations so far in 2023 compared to 1.77mn for the same nine-month period last year.

21.574mn installations have been recorded since the rollout began.

The same areas topped the regional installations scoreboard in September as in previous months. East England had 27,000 installs, southern England had 23,000 and the east Midlands had 20,000 installations.

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.
