Energy Assets, Britain’s leading independent industrial and commercial meter asset manager, is entering the domestic Meter Asset Provision (MAP) market through a strategic partnership with Access Install, one of the country’s fastest growing smart meter installation specialists.


The company will act as a dual fuel MAP to support Access Install’s ambitious expansion programme, which aims to increase the current meter install base of 350,000 to 1 million units by 2020.


Access Install was formed in 2015 and is now one of the country’s fastest growing Meter Operator Providers (MOP), thanks to its increasing success with a number of energy suppliers in winning domestic smart meter installation contracts.  The company is also an accredited Meter Asset Manager.


“Our success is down to our agile approach to end user communication from the moment we receive an order through to the successful installation,” said Lee Dickinson, Managing Partner of Access Install. “This is driving ‘first time’ completion rates of around 80% at an average of 4.7 meters per day…higher than any other MOP in the UK and very cost effective for our energy supplier customers.


“With the support of Energy Assets we can now offer a “one stop shop” for energy suppliers’ metering service requirements. We aim to scale up this winning formula over the next three years and extend our market reach to work alongside additional energy suppliers to reach our goal of 1 million meters installed by 2020.”


Stewart Love, Group Commercial Director at Energy Assets, said that the tie-up with Access Install was a perfect fit for the company’s asset ownership business stream.


“The innovation demonstrated by Access Install chimes perfectly with our own business ethos in the industrial and commercial space, so we see great opportunities opening up through this partnership, particularly as it provides an entry point for us as a Meter Asset Provider in the domestic smart meter market.”
