Eastbourne, U.K. and Redwood City, CA, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — October 29, 2009 – Smart grid solution provider Trilliant Incorporated has announced that it is to provide communications head-end software to British Gas as part of the first phase of the utility’s smart metering activities.

British Gas, part of Centrica plc and the United Kingdom’s leading energy and home services provider, will use UnitySuite™, Trilliant’s enterprise communications management software, for smart electricity and gas meters, home energy displays, thermostats, and other energy management devices.

“We are proud to be selected by one of the largest utilities in the world,” said Andy White, president and CEO of Trilliant. “This continues our market expansion in Europe and we look forward to expanding our role in the United Kingdom where the government plans to replace 47 million existing domestic gas and electricity meters with smart meters by 2020.”
