Met Office has been busy updating its data collection, reporting its latest data on the use of metered energy by households and businesses.
The Met Office said that it has collected data on metered power usage by the UK population of 1.6 million people.
The Met Office added that it was now collecting data on electricity consumption by households in the UK, Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
According to the Met Office, the number of metering households has risen by about 40% since 2008 and the proportion of households metering fell by almost 30%.
The Met office said that the growth in metering in the last two years was primarily due to the introduction of a new energy-saving feature introduced by the Government in 2020.
The UK metered population has now risen by 9% compared with the same period last year, and metering has risen almost 10% in Scotland, 12% in Wales and 7% in Northern Ireland.
