SM19: Combining Energy and Building Management Systems to Improve Asset Performance

Nicholas Heydon, Australasian Channel Manager, Optergy

This session explores using energy management systems (EMS) combined with building automation systems (BMS) to expose opportunities for improved building performance in commercial, retail, educational, government, healthcare and office sectors.

Combined systems result in lower installation costs, provide a single source of responsibility for delivery of high performing buildings, contextual alarming and greater overall efficiency. The session will outline how combined BMS & EMS alerts are actionable immediately and deliver automated real-time feedback pointing the onsite personnel towards solutions rather than being a noise generator.

A case study on Mirvac's Office Portfolio will be examined, demonstrating how a combined BMS & EMS system enables optimisation of building performance.
