Building Energy Management Systems

Building Energy Management Systems are integrated, computerised systems used to monitor and control specific energy-related building services plant and equipment, which will typically include HVAC systems, lighting and power systems.

Building Energy Management Systems

  • Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS)

    Type: 
    Technology
    Objective:

    Managing the energy and other needs in buildings efficiently and intelligently can have considerable benefits. A building energy management system (BEMS) is a sophisticated method to monitor and control the building's energy needs. Next to energy management, the system can control and monitor a large variety of other aspects of the building regardless of whether it is residential or commercial. Examples of these functions are heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting or security measures.

  • Energy management and performance improvement

    Type: 
    Technology
    Objective:

    Once various energy efficiency measures have been deployed in a building, energy management and performance improvements can be put in place as a set of tools to: (1) Ensure energy systems’ performance meet the design intention, through proper commissioning during building handover procedure. (2) Monitor, evaluate and manage the energy performance to optimise occupants’ comfort and a building’s functions, while maintaining energy efficiency, through Building Energy Management System (BEMS).

  • A method and process to quantify energy savings and carbon offsets real-time for buildings

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Researchers at Santa Clara University have developed a robust easy-to-implement and cost effective method to quantify real-time energy efficiencies of building facilities based on carbon offsets. This carbon meter can be used to forecast energy demand and to predict energy savings from better HVAC systems or better building materials. It can also be used to optimally size both existing and new HVAC systems boosting energy savings by 10-50%.
