AbstractThis study provides guidance to building owners and personnel in the selection of a central control and monitoring system (CCMS) suitable for a specific building or group of buildings. It estimates the annual energy savings resulting from utilization of CCMS and of estimating the payback period for various types of systems. A survey was made, to gather information regarding the initial and operating cost of CCMS, over-all savings and the fractions of these savings credited to each individual energy conservation measure. For most of the systems surveyed, it was possible to gather data about the capital cost, the number of monitored points and the various design and operating features.
