Energy Management vs. Building Automation Systems
As a commercial property owner, it makes sense that you are always looking for ways to enhance your building’s efficiency and reduce energy and operational costs. Two methods of doing this have become increasingly popular as of late: energy management and building automation systems.
Although people often refer to them interchangeably, these two systems differ significantly.
Let us start with energy management systems (EMS). These tools can help you enhance energy efficiency by highlighting areas that could improve. With an EMS, you can monitor how much energy your building’s HVAC system uses and where, then adjust to maintain or reduce your energy costs.
On the other hand, a building automation system (BAS) allows you to automate your HVAC units, as well as other electrical appliances and features. A BMS alone does not have the reporting capabilities of an EMS, but you can still take measures to optimize your energy use by regulating when your HVAC units run, for how long, and at what capacity.

The Benefits of Energy Management and Building Automation Systems
The benefits abound with EMS and BAS systems. Individually and combined, they can allow you to take better control of your energy use and ultimately save money. Below we have detailed some of the specific benefits of either system.
Benefits of an EMS:
- Data-Driven Decision Making: If you are looking for ways to improve your energy efficiency, an EMS will help you make highly informed decisions. From upgrading HVAC features to making operational adjustments, this system’s data reporting is invaluable.
- Cost Savings: An EMS makes it possible to optimize the energy your HVAC system uses. In turn, you can see significant reductions in your energy expenses from month to month.
- Enhanced HVAC Performance: By providing real-time data, you can identify when components of your HVAC system are working inefficiently or malfunctioning and take quick action to rectify the problem.
- Regulatory Compliance: Many jurisdictions have implemented energy efficiency regulations for commercial buildings. An EMS can make it easy to stay in compliance with these requirements.
Benefits of a BAS:
- Remote Monitoring and Control: It is no surprise that one of the top benefits of a BAS is the ability to control your HVAC system remotely. For the sake of convenience, safety, and energy efficiency, this can be a huge plus.
- Reduced Energy Costs: A BAS makes it easy to ensure you use your HVAC system when—and only when—you need it. Doing so can allow you to optimize your energy use and see cost savings.
- Streamlined Operations: The centralized control and monitoring that a BAS allows for can allow you to efficiently manage multiple systems and equipment, enhancing your operational efficiency and reducing human error.
- Increased Property Value: The integration of sustainable and efficient technologies—like a BAS—can attract tenants and investors who value energy-efficient and smart building solutions.

Are EMS and BAS Compatible?
Yes! In fact, they often work best together. This is because an EMS’s insights would allow you to better use your BMS to optimize your HVAC system’s efficiency. They can, of course, work independently of one another and still provide a great deal of value.
