GE, Trilliant deliver smart grid as a service for public power utilities

GE chose Trilliant’s smart grid communications platform to be a part of GE’s GridIQ solutions as a service offerings for the public power industry.

Public power utilities are exploring and considering smart grid investments to enhance operational efficiency, improve reliability and increase customer engagement.

Deploying smart grid technology can pose challenges for public power utilities given their unique business and operating conditions. Some public power utilities may choose not to invest the capital or information technology resources necessary for integration with their own infrastructure.

The Trilliant Platform allows a utility to deploy not only smart metering (AMI), but also the flexibility to support advanced smart distribution applications such as Volt/VAR control, fault detection, isolation and restoration (FDIR), and other real-time distribution automation initiatives in the future.
