Trilliant has announced today the availability of the Trilliant Consumer-Engagement Solutions. This interoperable standard-based product combines Trilliant's UnitySuite software, SecureMesh networking and DDX technology to provide a platform for utilities to enable demand response and energy awareness programs. It enables utilities and energy service providers to empower consumers with relevant information at the right time to manage and increase their awareness of their own energy consumption.

Trilliant listened to regulators and utilities and developed a product to create simplified demand response for its customers. Markets such as Ontario, Canada, where time-of-use pricing is widely deployed, will greatly benefit from a solution such as this. Many utilities consider time-of-use billing a critical business benefit of a smarter energy grid because it allows them to delay the construction of power generation and distribution infrastructure, resulting in lower environmental impact, more reliable service and lower capital expenditures.

Trilliant's Consumer-Engagement Solutions simplify the daily activities for utilities relating to consumer engagement programs by streamlining and improving device management. The product has integrated industry standard HAN security into a utility grade multi-tier network and provides built-in privacy enhancements.

Built on Trilliant's UnitySuite DSM Enterprise Software and run across Trilliant's SecureMesh network, the solutions leverage Trilliant's DDX technology, which has previously been used to give Trilliant scalability in metering applications through distributed intelligence in the millions of meter nodes deployed at customers' homes. With this new solution, Trilliant has extended the use of the distributed intelligence of DDX technology to provide that same scalability, real-time alarms and efficient use of communications resources.
