What is a Smart Meter?

Any Electricity Smart Meter Equipment (ESME) or Gas Smart Meter Equipment (GSME) that communicates wirelessly from your premise to the energy supplier via the Data Communication Company (DCC) is considered a smart meter.

SMETS2 which is the second generation of smart meter, are being rolled out across the domestic and smaller non-domestic market over the next few years.

Like AMR meters, smart meters enable businesses to benefit from accurate half hourly consumption data, making it easier for them to access the best tariffs, new services and switch more easily to a different energy supplier.


Automated Meter Reading (AMR) compared to SMETS2

Despite certain similarities, AMR devices and smart meters perform slightly differently and utilise different communications means to deliver data.

Unlike AMR, the operation of smart meters is through a centralised data communication company. These meters are produced to an industry standard referred to as the Smart Metering Equipment Technical Standard (SMETs).
