Abstract : This report addresses the selection and implementation of single-building energy monitoring and control systems. The process is examined in three phases. The initial phase examines the selection of candidate buildings based on metered utility data, examination of building operation, examination of building systems and controls, and measured data. The second phase examined the capability of time clocks, duty cyclers, demand limiters, programmable controllers, micro EMCS and small EMCS. The functions performed by each are examined. Alternatives to EMCS are presented. An example calculation compares time clock control, time clock control with control enhancement, and small EMCS control of a typical air handling unit. The interface techniques for efficient installation and operation. A summary of the analysis steps follows.
