Data collector and data aggregator

We are an Elexon-accredited Meter Operator (MOP), Data Collector and Data Aggregator (DCDA) for half-hourly (HH) and non-half-hourly (NHH) electricity meter supplies.

As your data collector (DC), we retrieve and validate the data from your meter before forwarding to your energy supplier, enabling the efficient processing of billing. As your data aggregator (DA), we also ensure your data is settled in line with industry procedures.

MOP DCDA – the integrated metering and data solution

We provide you with the highest quality data. That’s owing to our rare capability to act as both data collector and data aggregator alongside providing bespoke meter operator (MOP) services through our integrated MOP DCDA solution.

We are one of the few companies in the UK energy market to offer the full metering, collection and aggregation process completely in-house. Such continuity allows us to maximise efficiency and accuracy within the data supply chain, reducing the risks of discrepancies on your electricity bills.
