            Energy Management (EMAN) Applicability Statement

Abstract

   The objective of Energy Management (EMAN) is to provide an energy
   management framework for networked devices.  This document presents
   the applicability of the EMAN information model in a variety of
   scenarios with cases and target devices.  These use cases are useful
   for identifying requirements for the framework and MIBs.  Further, we
   describe the relationship of the EMAN framework to other relevant
   energy monitoring standards and architectures.
