Energy Management Systems (EMS)

For both large and small facilities, an EMS lowers energy costs by automatically controlling equipment and the indoor environment.
The primary function of an EMS is to automatically turn off equipment when it is not needed. EMS are programmable and can be managed online from remote locations. Continuing advances in EMS technology have made these systems cost-effective for smaller, existing facilities.

 

EMS: Better Control for Reduced Energy Use

Energy management systems are versatile. They are capable of maintaining different schedules for different pieces of equipment with unique schedules for each day of the week. Systems can be programmed to reflect occupancy levels, shift schedules, type of work performed, and other variables that affect the demand for heating and cooling. EMS technology can be used to relax temperature set points when a building is unoccupied. They do this by alternating the use of heating and air conditioning, rather than turning systems off completely. This approach controls humidity, protects the building’s contents, and prevents overheating and freezing.
