Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is responsible for the smart energy meter implementation programme. Energy companies are not required, as delivery agents, to provide regional data on the number of meters installed. However, GLA officers have met with DECC to understand what progress is being made. DECC reiterated that reqional data is not released by them or energy companies. As a result they are looking into the possibility of releasing London's data.

Thames Water is planning to install over 900,000 smart water meters over the next five years in London. To date (15 Jan 2016), Thames Water have installed 11,601 smart water meters.
