Half of all operational gas and electricity meters were smart or advanced meters by the end of 2021.
That’s according to new government data which shows there has been a 7%-point increase from a year before.
The statistics also suggest at the end of 2021 there were 27.8 million smart and advanced meters in homes and small businesses across the UK.
A total of 3.8 million meters were installed last year, with most installed by large energy suppliers.
The report also highlights that although there were some Covid-19 restrictions still in place in 2021, installations increased by 19% compared to 2020.
