Enabling Utilities to Deploy and Diversify into Nontraditional Markets 

The “digital utility,” grid modernization and enabling utilities to deploy and diversify into non-traditional markets are some of the top trends Trilliant foresees as being important in the near future. Trilliant believes that to propel the energy industry to a bright future, the ’next generation’ of smart grid must be built on a network that allows for a frictionless exchange of data. Utilities, representing the largest, active business case of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), must find efficient ways to deliver services, generate new revenue streams, and engage with their residents. Technologies must work with any system and provide a secure, powerful source of data. In many areas, alternate business models and service offerings are critical for sustainability. Looking forward to the future with optimism and a can-do spirit, Trilliant believes the possibilities they can create for companies, communities, and people are endless and compel them to work towards creating new solutions.
