ARI Project


Building Energy Management Open Source Software (BEMOSS)


The BEMOSS project is designed to develop an open source software platform for building energy management systems (BEMS) to improve small and medium-sized building energy efficiency and help implement demand response (DR). This opens up demand side ancillary services markets and creates opportunities for building owners, which in turn can help accelerate development of market-ready products like embedded BEMS and communication device controllers for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting and plug loads. It enables utilities and independent system operators (ISOs) to actively leverage DR as a partial substitute for generation reserve or transmission upgrade.
