The EMP is anchored by the process outlined in its Energy Management Guideline.
It describes a commissioning-based method to energy management. This process-oriented approach is designed to assist the building owner in achieving energy savings while maintaining optimum building performance. The method is data-driven as opposed to making assumptions and calculations based on unreliable information.
EMA’s reach and influence has expanded to include a wide array of building engineers, contractors, building owners, facility managers, manufacturers, utilities, commissioning providers, and others with an interest in advancing the quality of energy management services.
