Smart Metering


What We Do

On behalf of the National Skills Academy for Power (NSAP), Energy & Utility Skills works with energy suppliers and meter operators from across the gas and power industries on training standards and training programmes for Smart Metering installers.

It is a requirement of the Ofgem approved SMICoP (Smart Metering Installation Code of Practice) that Meter Operators use only Smart Meter workers who have received training from an NSAP accredited provider (or equivalent) to install Smart Meters (on first installation).

The scheme’s specification is monitored and maintained by the Smart Metering Network Group (SMNG) which is an Energy & Utility Skills network group (the group also provides updates into the BEIS Smart Metering Operation Group). SMNG is made up of representatives from major energy suppliers, meter operators and their contractors.

All Smart Meter installers who have successfully completed an NSAP approved training programme from an NSAP approved provider are eligible for an EUSR registration. Registration is valid for three years.

Our Smart Metering portfolio includes:
