What is a smart meter and how does it work?

A smart meter is the latest generation of gas and electricity meter. It can send readings directly to your energy supplier for more accurate energy bills.

If you have a smart meter installed, it replaces any older, standard meter previously in place.

The UK government awarded Smart DCC the licence to create manage the data and communications network that connects smart meters to the business systems of energy suppliers, network operators and other authorised service users of the network.

Smart DCC maintains the secure communication network over which your smart meter sends your energy usage data to your supplier.
