GE's Digital Energy business and smart grid solutions provider Trilliant are helping to develop a smart energy infrastructure for Philippines-based utility Manila Electric Co. (Meralco).

Trilliant says the first phase of Meralco's long-term smart grid vision involves integrating "smart intelligence" into the electric distribution network to help consumers better manage their electricity consumption.

"We are looking at the benefits of smart prepaid metering to deliver better service to our customers," says Alfredo Panlilio, head of customer retail services and corporate communications for Meralco. "This is the first phase of our long-term smart grid road map, which will eventually not only focus on prepaid metering, but also the modernization of our electric infrastructure, which will eventually deliver better customer experience, improved energy efficiency and enhanced reliability."

As part of an overall energy infrastructure modernization strategy, GE will provide electric meters and system integration services, Trilliant reports. In addition, Trilliant says it is providing its smart grid communications platform to help enable advanced intelligence in the prepaid metering system and serve as a foundation for future advanced smart grid capabilities.
