Automation Through Energy Management and Control Systems — Where We Stand Today

  • Bill Gerken


Automation through computerized control has become the standard in sophisticated building design. Widespread use of the technology resulted from the energy crises of the 1970’s. Sustained use of these systems is due to the combined benefits of energy and cost savings, enhanced building control and information management. In this second edition of the Energy Management and Control Systems Handbook, emphasis will be placed on each of these areas of benefit. It is important to discuss each area in relation to the effect that technology advances have had, and to address some key lessons that the industry has learned through tracking system performance.
