Energy suppliers are installing second generation smart meters as the default option across Great Britain. These meters are connected to the Data Communications Company’s national smart metering communications network, so are compatible across energy suppliers from the point of installation.

The Government has confirmed that a new four-year policy framework with fixed annual installation targets for energy suppliers will commence on 1 January 2022 to drive the consistent, long-term investment needed to achieve market-wide rollout.
