Integrating with your Building Management System
The EnRiMa DSS can be used as a standalone tool. However, to let the EnRiMa DSS automatically give your building energy management system (BEMS) the optimal temperature set points from the operational model it provides an application programming interface (API) based on standard web-service (WS) technologies.
The web-service API for the BEMS and site communication are designed and available for two test sites and general enough for other buildings. The web-service can easily be reprogrammed for other sites assuming similar set-ups as at the Spanish and Austrian test sites used in the EnRiMa project. By using the web service API, it is thus possible to integrate the EnRiMa DSS with a modern BEMS. A world-wide weather forecasting service is already fully integrated.
