Study: Confusion, Growth Opportunities in Building Management Systems

mach_energyA survey by MACH Energy found that 44 percent of 800 facility management professionals have an energy management system (EMS) deployed. Of those, almost 70 percent have a building management system (BMS) and not a standalone EMS. The company says that the results suggest both potential growth and confusion on system definitions among the respondents.

MACH further concluded that the top three reasons for deployment are the desire for cost reduction, energy efficiency and ease and flexibility for those running the system. Respondents with EMSes installed want improvements. Twenty-one percent said systems lack automated tenant billing or sub-metering and others saw a lack of multi-utility support.

Yesterday, Energy Manager Today reported on a Lux Research study that indicated that software-as-a-service innovations and $1.4 billion in venture capital funding over a 14-year period are fueling the building energy management system (BEMS) segment.
