Energy management in educational institutions is a much needed requirement due to the random energy needs and changing occupational behavior. A smart energy management system will be able to counter the different energy needs of the university building so that the energy needs are reduced to a minimum. Hence, a smart energy framework is proposed by comprising several layers of information transfer, and algorithms for smart light and consumption control based on the data are discussed.
