Trilliant Passes the Million

The smart grid is gaining momentum in the US with Trilliant, which provides advanced metering and smart grid solutions, reporting that it has deployed over a million intelligent devices.

These two-way communication devices help create an energy grid which allows greater energy efficiency, more efficient utility delivery and better integration of renewable resources, which all helps to reduce carbon emissions.

It's an aim of many countries to have a smart grid in place - it's become a political football in the UK, for example, and the recent US Congress economic stimulus package called for $32bn directed at improving the US transmission grid, $4.5bn of which is directed specifically at smart grid programmes and grants, both for utilities and their customers.

Don't forget - a pdf of all the 2008 blogs is available with news, comment and links to a range of sources. Click
