Technical Summary

        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.
