RWE npower picks Trilliant smart meter platform

RWE npower chose smart energy communications provider Trilliant to supply pre-DCC Foundation smart meter services, including the Trilliant Communications Hubs and UnitySuite Head-End Software.

Trilliant has already begun working on delivering smart meter solutions to RWE npower for a rollout beginning this year. The deal will make Trilliant the largest provider of in-home smart energy communications solutions in the U.K.

With more than 500,000 homes in the U.K. already connected to Trilliant’s UnitySuite Head-End, RWE npower will be able to use Trilliant’s knowledge of smart meter deployments to leverage the current solution for deployment this year.

The UnitySuite HES, part of the Trilliant Communications Platform, is able to manage the demands of a compliant smart meter system by managing the devices and communications across the whole smart meter fleet.
