DCC is concluding on this in several parts.
On 15 February 2023, DCC published the ‘SMETS1 Conclusion - Closure 2 – Part A’ covering partial Migration. On 15 March 2023, DCC published the ‘SMETS1 Conclusion - Closure 2 – Part B’ covering the remaining regulatory changes.
On 16 March 2023, DCC concluded on the closure of the Requesting Party for the FOC (NP) cohort and submitted the ‘Closure 2 Part C Conclusion’ document to the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero for consideration by the Secretary of State.
Later in March 2023, DCC will bring forward a separate conclusion covering closure of the Requesting Party for the IOC cohort.
