Trilliant, a global smart energy communications company, is extending its smart metering partnership with British Gas, an energy supplier in the U.K. The companies have been working together for four years on communications technologies, and this next phase will see the deployment of more smart meters and the introduction of customer prepayment capabilities.

Trilliant supplies the smart metering communications system to British Gas, including the communications hubs and Trilliant's UnitySuite head-end software for the management of smart metering business processes and communications.

"British Gas, Trilliant and our other partners have worked closely to build the right technical solution for our customers," says Stuart Rolland, managing director, smart metering, for British Gas. "We are committed to bringing this standards-based solution to the broader U.K. market, supporting a smooth transition from the current rollout to the U.K,-wide mandated rollout."

The U.K. government has required smart meters to be deployed among all consumers in the U.K.
