People don’t always understand the value of smart grids and metering. It can be an excellent tool for monitoring utilities, preventing unnecessary costs and providing a good overview of energy usage.
Fortunately, Trilliant (News - Alert) knows the importance of smart grids and the benefits they can provide, and is helping utilities and energy retailers get the most out of their smart grid goals.
Trilliant is a company dealing in smart grid communications platforms. Rather than just providing metering, its solutions have end-to-end smart grids, such as the Connected Energy Platform, a platform with communications solutions designed to help deploy utilities and smart grids. It unites the utility data center, grid, and consumer metering, helping utilities and energy retailers deploy a variety of smart grid initiatives and critical applications, while staying within various limitations and mandates.
Its high-end software works with mesh, cellular and PLC, while remaining flexible and modular, allowing users to pick and choose which parts of the grid they want to deploy and when. Trilliant’s systems are built to interoperate within a utility IT environment, using the UnitySuite Head-End Software’s customized integration with enterprise applications.
While power usage tends to be determined by cost and convenience, there are many benefits to using smart grids. Annual benefits from end-to-end smart grids in the U.S. alone come to around 119 billion dollars, although spending in the U.S. is more focused on subsidies, rather than a comprehensive strategy.
There’s a huge potential market there, and Trilliant is focused on it, expanding from the U.S. to the U.K., Pacific Asia, Latin America and more.
While it’s easy to focus on all the pretty lights and flashy displays on technology these days, one mustn’t forget the small-yet-essential things. Trilliant is focusing on resources, energy efficiency and operating costs, some of the most important factors for any business; it’s certainly not to be overlooked.
