An efficient energy management system in commercial/institutional buildings can reduce energy consumption and operational cost and provide a comfortable and healthy indoor environment. However, without incorporating energy-efficient technologies and analysing the resulting performance the building energy management system may not provide effective control over energy consumption and the indoor environmental conditions. To verify system performance, it is necessary to study the building energy efficiency, examine building indoor environment and investigate existing operational strategies. This can eventually give the actual energy scenario of the building exploring problems existing within the system and opportunities for further upgrade paths that are both technologically and economically sustainable. To get the actual scenario of building energy management facilities, an institutional building of Murdoch University, Australia that incorporated state of the art technologies in the last two decades will be studied in this paper. Through this case study analysis salient information is revealed that will bring benefits to the energy management personnel as well as researchers in this area.
