ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DistribuTECH -- Trilliant, a global smart communications leader, today is proud to announce that its multi-technology, multi-purpose Smart Communications Platform has reached approximately 65% market share in the UK, in one of the most progressive smart deployments in the world, focusing on delivering real benefits for the consumers.
According to a study commissioned by the European Smart Metering Industry Group, UK households have the potential to achieve annual savings of £938 million a year by measuring and managing their electricity use using smart meters. The Government has identified smart meters as key energy efficiency technology and is aiming for approximately 52 million smart meters to be installed in 30 million homes and businesses in the UK by 2019. One of the key barriers to this roll out is the mastery of the business and technical complexities required to ensure successful rollouts.
This success is a testament of the feat accomplished by Trilliant and partner teams, as well as the strong teamwork and leadership between the company and its energy retailer customers. It also demonstrates the company's full commitment to the UK Smart vision in offering its deep technological expertise and experience to help deliver real benefits to UK consumers.
The cellular-based Trilliant Communications Hub, part of the multi-technology, multi-purpose Trilliant Smart Communications Platform, has been successfully deployed in the UK, enabling a Smart system connecting electric meters, gas meters and in-home displays. Moreover, the Trilliant UnitySuite Head-End System (HES), also part of the Trilliant Smart Communications Platform, is able to manage all of the demands of a compliant smart system by managing all the smart devices and communications across the whole smart fleet.
