       This document defines a framework for Energy Management for 
       devices and device components within or connected to 
       communication networks.  The framework presents a physical 
       reference model and information model. The information 
       model consists of an Energy Management Domain as a set of 
       Energy Objects. Each Energy Object can be attributed with 
       identity, classification, and context.  Energy Objects can 
       be monitored and controlled with respect to power, Power 
       State, energy, demand, Power Attributes, and battery.  
       Additionally the framework models relationships and 
       capabilities between Energy Objects.
