This important reference has been put together specifically to prepare energy managers to understand the basic concepts and principles of information technology (IT), so that they can successfully apply this knowledge in their facility – and have the understanding necessary to supervise the IT work of a consultant or vendor. You’ll find all of the critical information needed to effectively purchase, install and operate complex web-based energy information and control systems. Comprehensive in scope, this reference addresses all of the most significant energy and facility-relevant IT concepts and principles you’ll typically need to take your operations to the “next level,” with emphasis on networking, use of facility operation databases, and sharing data using the web and the TCP/IP communications protocol.
