The building management system provides an important source of information, which may be exported to other applications. Building performance and energy consumption are analysed by energy monitoring and targeting software, to assist in effective energy management. Information from the BMS is employed as part of facilities management, including the administration of planned maintenance.
7.1 Energy monitoring
A major justification for the installation of a BMS is the prevention of energy waste. Correct and efficient control of HVAC plant will itself contribute to efficient use of energy but in addition it is necessary ...
