Latest in SMETS1

The government has announced the smart meter rollout deadline has been extended from 2020 to 2024. There have been ongoing concerns from within the industry that the 2020 deadline was all but impossible.
News
The Data Communications Company (DCC) has announced that 2 million SMETS2 smart meters have been installed. SMETS2 devices are expected to iron out the issues faced by customers with first-generation (SMETS1) devices.
News
The latest smart meter installation figures reinforced the long-held view that the 2020 deadline is now impossible. But, more worryingly the rate of installations among the large suppliers continues to fall month by month and according to one expert, the process is about to enter its most difficult phase.
Analysis
A total of 2.7 million “dumb” meters were operating as of 30 June this year, the latest statistics reveal - making up 18 per cent of the total installed so far. The figures for Q2 2019 show a 4.2 per cent increase in the number of smart meters in operation, compared to the previous quarter. However, they show a fall in the number fitted by the large suppliers.
News
Ahead of the publication today of the latest smart meter installation statistics, new research suggests one in five consumers has still been offered a SMETS1 device since March. The research also claims more than a third of households with smart meters have faced problems since installation, with some devices losing functionality entirely.
News
Avro Energy was slapped with the final order earlier this year when it failed to become a member of the DCC's network. It has since complied and Ofgem has revoked the order.
News
The Data Communications Company (DCC) has begun the countdown to delivering Ofgem's switching programme. The Central Switching Service (CSS) was initially scheduled to go live at the end of next year but it has since been pushed back to 2021.
