What is "EMS" Anyway? "EMS" Anyway?

• • • • • •

Building Automation? Power Metering? Remote Monitoring? Energy Analytics? Dashboards? Smart Grid?

Energy Management System

a railroad system. an assemblage or combination of things or parts forming a complex or unitary whole: a mountain system. .Energy Management System sys·tem t [sis-tuhm] noun 1. a control system.

Energy Management System M = I3 in action .

Communication … not as simple as it looks Even simple communication is complex .

The BACnet Standard • Enables effective communication among building devices devices. systems & applications by specifying: – – – – – – Physical interconnection options Network routing options g p Data representation options Data exchange options Action-Requests/Response options Capability options .

BACnet Systems Experience • BACnet implementations need to be designed … by somebody • Poorly engineered systems perform poorly (with or without BACnet) • Users need to pay attention • Consulting engineers need to be informed • Integrators need to be trained • BACnet is a tool. not a goal • Community adds value .

The BACnet Community BACnet Standard Development • Clarifications • Corrections • Extensions BACnet Community Development • Education • Testing • Promotion plus regional BACnet Interest Groups developing in the Middle East and Asia .

BACnet Standard Development • ASHRAE consensus standard via SSPC-135 • Adopted as US national standard by ANSI • Adopted as European standard by CEN • Adopted as Global standard by ISO – ISO 16484-5 – The only complete. ISO BAS standard .
