Sao Paulo, Brazil, August 21, 2012 — Trilliant and ELO Sistemas Eletronicos, formed a strategic partnership that provides both companies the ability to package the Trilliant communications platform with ELO's metering expertise to deliver smarter energy to utilities, businesses and consumers in Latin America.
Latin America has enjoyed strong growth over the past decade and the International Monetary Fund predicts this progress will continue. With the region's prosperity, energy demand has climbed sharply.
Energy use in Brazil has increased by close to one-third in the last decade. To ensure the region's power producers are able to continue meeting growing demands, a modern approach to energy delivery is needed.
This partnership permits ELO to sell and deploy smart meters compatible with Trilliant's Platform, allowing ELO to respond quickly to a wide range of utility customers' communication needs. The Trilliant Platform offers utilities and energy retailers the widest range of options and flexibility to solve any smart grid business need.
The platform is specifically tailored to a business' particular goals, regulatory model, and service territory. Additionally, Trilliant can sell ELO's electric meters to customers across Latin America and throughout the world. This integrated metering technology is expected to be available in late 2012.
