Abstract

Since the global energy crisis in 1973, energy conservation has become one of the most important issues in building management. Design concepts have shifted from the main emphasis on performance and effectiveness to efficiency in terms of energy consumption. In this chapter, we are going to look at the impact of artificial intelligence within the HVAC industry, an ANN based energy management system and multiple cooperating knowledge sources for designing energy systems.
