Abstract: A well-designed and properly installed and operated building automation and control system (BACS) is critical to achieving energy efficiency and environmental goals in the building sector. However, there is an overall lack of a user friendly and comprehensive scheme for BACS auditing and evaluation, ensuring that the BACS lives up to the required standards and providing the added value promised. This is the gap which IBACSA is aiming to fill, addressing the missing link between the regulatory standards and the actual design of current and future BACS components and the corresponding functionalities.
