A system that is used to monitor, control and overall optimise the performance of a buildings energy consumption and or energy generation when using computer aided tools, is referred to as EMS or Energy management system.
Used in many different locations and in various building types, EMS will enable the user to monitor, measure and control the electrical building loads within the properties. This is often used in individual commercial entities.
An Energy management system is the means to be able to control and reduce your properties or organization’s energy consumption. Controlling and reducing your energy consumption is important because it enables you to reduce costs. As energy costs continue to rise this enables consumption to be at the most cost and energy efficient.
Energy Management Systems can be implemented in stages starting with smaller-scale, quick return-on-investment projects and moving to more comprehensive, higher-value projects
Building management systems (BMS) can also be referred to as a building automation system (BAS). It is a computer-based control system installed in buildings that controls and monitors the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment such as;
Building management systems are most commonly applied in large projects with mechanical, HVAC, and electrical systems. Systems linked to a BMS typically represent 40% of a building’s energy usage; if lighting is included, this number approaches to 70%. BMS systems are a critical component to managing energy demand and ensuring energy efficiency.
