Meter Provida becomes the first multi-metering supply chain management company to utilise ElectraLink’s Energy Market Insight service


Meter Provida has continued to cement its reputation as the UK’s leading multi-utility metering supply chain management company by establishing a historic relationship with ElectraLink.

The new partnership allows Meter Provida to utilise ElectraLink’s Energy Market Insight service, based on key information exchanged across the Data Transfer Network (DTN), to improve the data availability for Meter Provida’s reverse logistics process. ElectraLink’s DTN connects all retail market participants, and underpins industry inter-operability and supports processes critical to a competitive energy market.

This partnership makes Meter Provida the only company of its kind in the UK to have access to this particular dataset – as ElectraLink looks to work with industry leading companies across all sections of the retail energy market to drive efficiency in its operation.

This agreement will enable data to be sent to Meter Provida to better validate the owner of an electricity meter so optimising the return and repatriation process.

Locating the owners of legacy meters can be notoriously difficult. Meter Provida is determined to make sure that as many legacy meters as possible are returned to owners to be reused or recycled.

Stephen Burr, Managing Director of Meter Provida, said:

“We are pleased to be working closely with ElectraLink and making use of their data to strengthen our service offering.

“This agreement sets us head and shoulders above our competitors and will allow us to provide an industry leading level of service to our customers.”

Dan Hopkinson, Head of Network and EMI Services, said:

“The energy market is moving to an environment that is underpinned by data. We’re delighted to be working with Meter Provida. This contract further demonstrates our intention to work with companies that will make innovative use of our data.”
