This June 2020 report is by 75F. It has been roughly 15 years since new technology has been applied to building energy management systems (EMS), and within those years, technology has evolved significantly. Because of this, across the industry EMS systems are being supplanted by additional software layers and complexity to help understand the equipment installed in place and how it can be optimized. In comparison, a predictive solution that leverages cloud-based algorithms can provide a building solution that enables everything within the envelope to function more efficiently, save more energy, and enhanced occupant comfort. The report will be of interest from the perspective of energy management, building operations, large buildings controls/automation, and analytics.
Key words: blade/edge technology, fire/life safety, cloud & data analytics, energy management, system integrators, mesh networking, utilities, large building controls/automation, HVAC, intelligent buildings, structure wiring/cable
