The article discusses how advanced controls technology and the ability to get different systems talking to one another via an appropriate building management system (BMS) is a valuable tool to quickly deliver significant return on initial investment. It notes that a true BMS can bring together a building's whole heating and cooling estate and bring significant energy saving and operational benefits. It suggests incorporating building energy management module to manage lighting in large sites.
