Data collection for your energy strategy
Data collector and data aggregator
We are an Elexon-accredited Meter Operator (MOP) and 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. We then forward it to your energy supplier, enabling efficient bill processing. 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 because we don’t just offer bespoke Meter Operator (MOP) services. We are also in the rare position to act as both a Data Collector (DC) and Data Aggregator (DA) 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. This allows us to maximise efficiency and accuracy within the data supply chain, reducing the risk of billing discrepancies.
