Trilliant, a California-based smart grid communications and solutions provider, and ELO Sistemas Eletronicos, a Brazil-based metering technology provider, have entered into a strategic partnership to package the Trilliant communications platform with ELO's metering services in Latin America.

Under this partnership, ELO will sell and deploy smart meters compatible with Trilliant's platform, and Trilliant will sell ELO's electric meters to customers across Latin America and throughout the world.

"Building on our current work in the region, this partnership with ELO is indicative of the significant opportunity that utilities in Latin America have to encourage continued economic growth by utilizing modern technology to provide power in smarter and more efficient ways," says Walter Lowes, Trilliant's managing director for the Americas.
