Monthly Smart Meter Installs
ElectraLink is presenting this analysis of the location of smart meter installations within distribution network (GSP) areas to show the deployment of smart meters across GB and the power of the data carried by the Data Transfer Network (DTN).
The analysis is based on the D0150 data flows which are transmitted across our network and which we believe capture the vast majority of smart meter installations. The users of the DTS have given ElectraLink permission to intercept and analyse this, and other data flows across the DTN, 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.
