<i> It is possible that DCC will manage to make all the different SMETS1 meters work inter-operably, but that'd be a big challenge for anybody. And with Capita running DCC, what do you reckon? </i>

Depends if it's Capita or somebody else who writes it for them...

It is a big challenge, and some decisions made for commercial reasons have made it worse (at least in the current time, I don't hear everything in my cave). I'm not aware of any upgradable meters, plus there's no certified SMETS2 meters so I don't see how the October deadline will work.

<i>If a meter manufacturer chooses not to do SMETS2, it will exclude itself from the UK meter market.</i>

That depends on whether you can talk to the meter/ch directly, or if you have to go via their central system....
