The article provides information on the automation system, extended energy-management systems or enterprise energy-management systems (EEMS). The article first looks at a typical North American facility cost and the traditional ways by which facility managers reduce utility and maintenance costs. It then discusses how EEMS can be used by managers to reduce costs. In addition, the article explains how advanced EEMS produces specialized reports to efficiently recommission buildings continuously.
