Trilliant Provides Insights on Leading Smart Grid Communications Technology to Colombian Energy Sector Delegates in Reverse Trade Mission

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – October 9, 2012– Trilliant, a global smart grid communications leader, delivering solutions that enhance energy efficiency, utility operations and renewable resource integration, announced today that it will host the Colombian Energy Sector Delegates in a Reverse Trade Mission (RTM), at the invitation of the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). The Colombia Smart Grid RTM included representatives from the Colombian Ministry of Mines and Energy, Energy and Gas Regulatory Commission, Center of Research and Technological Development, CODENSA, Interconexión Eléctrica, Empresa de Energía del Pacífico, Empresas Municipales de Cali E.I.C.E., Empresas Públicas de Medellín, ICONTEC, Universidad de los Andes, and XM, among others.

Future consumption of electricity in Colombia is expected to grow by a total of 40 percent by 2020, according to the RECIPES project. The RTM aims to provide opportunities for participating Colombian delegates to learn more about cutting-edge U.S. technologies, equipment and services that can assist with the deployment of smart grid projects in Colombia.

“Latin America, including Colombia, has a significant opportunity to leverage the power of smart grid technology to meet the region’s increasing demand for reliable energy,” said Walter Lowes, Trilliant’s managing director for the Americas. “We are delighted to have the opportunity to help share insights with delegates from Latin America on leading-edge smart grid communications networks that can help deliver electricity in more efficient ways.”

Earlier this year, Trilliant announced a partnership with ELO Sistemas Eletrônicos, a leading metering technology provider based in Brazil. The partnership enables both companies to package the Trilliant Communications Platform with ELO’s metering expertise to deliver smarter energy to utilities, businesses and consumers in Latin America. The Trilliant Communications Platform is the only purpose-built communications platform that integrates disparate systems of smart grid communications technology into a unified whole.
