BEIS Consultation on Extention of SMETS1 End Date

3 July 2018

Today BEIS issued a consultation seeking views on a revised, final SMETS1 end date (5th December 2018) to be set in the Smart Energy Code (SEC). The consultation also seeks views on a proposed new Advanced Meter Exception end date, and on moving back the timeframe of the derogations from the SMETS1 end date already granted to qualifying energy suppliers. Further, it consults on a proposal to modify the smart metering regulatory framework so as to allow for the SMETS1 end date to be split by the meter type being replaced. This consultation proposes that non-smart, prepayment meters replaced with SMETS1 meters have a later end date (15th March 2019).

The date for responses to this consultation is 2pm on 14th August 2018.
