Concerns about energy efficiency and carbon footprints are becoming more significant in the power industry and public policy, as evidenced by the concerted shift to renewable energy sources and energy conservation paradigms. One of the largest consumers of energy in the US is the residential and commercial buildings sector. This paper explores a conceptual framework of a cyber-physical system (CPS) for energy management in such structures, viz. a Cyber-enabled Efficient Building Energy Management System (CEBEMS), aimed at attaining some level of energy self-sufficiency.
