Annex 16 was established in January 1988, with its primary objective of pulling together information and operating experience in BEMS technology. The purpose of this work is to provide appropriate guidance to the specifiers and operators of BEMS, in order that energy saving potential of the technology can be realised in the target building and then maintained over the life of the system.

The annex is a task sharing project and is divided into two subtasks. The first subtask is aimed at assisting the appropriate selection and specification of a BEMS system for a range of "typical" building types. The second subtask is intended to build up a paper knowledge base of management rules and procedures to help ensure the successful continuing operation of the system after installation.
