A well-designed and managed Building Management System (BMS) provides great opportunities for improvements in energy efficiency by:

  • Enabling building managers to provide an optimal working environment consistent with maintaining a building's energy efficiency rating
  • Early identification of equipment failure
  • Identification of unusual patterns of energy usage, such as equipment being left on out of office hours
  • Monitoring effectiveness of Energy Management Plans.
