This wave of information technology (IT) and web-based energy information and control systems (web based EIS/ECS) continues to roll on with increasing speed and intensity. This handbook provides both a presentation of technological advancements in this field over the last several years, as well as a compilation of what the editors believe to be the best of the information from three previous books addressing this area. The combined thrust of this information is that the highest level functions of the building and facility automation system are delivered by a web based EIS/ECS system that provides energy management, facility management, overall facility operational management, and ties in with the enterprise resource management system for the entire facility or the group of facilities being managed.
