Bringing to the forefront the most critical areas of effective energy cost cutting, this fully updated edition of this best-selling energy manager's guide includes a new chapter on greenhouse gas emissions management, and two updated chapters covering web-based energy information and control systems, and creating green buildings. Written by three of the most respected energy professionals in the industry, this book examines the fundamental objectives of energy management, and illustrates techniques and tools proven effective for achieving results. Topics include distributed generation, energy auditing, rate structures, economic evaluation techniques, lighting efficiency improvement, HVAC optimization, combustion and use of industrial wastes, steam generation and distribution system performance, control systems, and energy systems maintenance, renewable energy, and industrial water management.Many of these current BAS systems use a proprietary information structure and communications protocol that greatly limits the plug ... Control solutions such as BACnet and LonWorks have helped this situation somewhat, but they have also introduced their own levels of difficulties. The BAS of the future will integrate state of the art information technology (IT) standards used widely on the internet today.
