Web Based Enterprise Energy and Building Automation Systems
Barney Capehart, Ph.D., C.E.M., Editor

The use of IT and web based energy information and control systems has expanded from single facilities to multiple facilities and organizations with buildings located throughout the world. This book describes how to glean simple and useful information from the wealth of available data in order to improve the efficiency and productivity of commercial, institutional and industrial facilities. This valuable reference book provides insight into the areas of advanced applications of web based EIS and ECS systems, integration of IT/web based information and control systems with existing BAS systems, commissioning IT/web based systems, measurement and verification of energy saving projects, and monitoring and control of all operations of a facility to integrate the energy related operations of a facility to the business side of the facility — including financial, purchasing, sales, personnel, quality control, manufacturing and service delivery.
