                   Requirements for Energy Management
                    draft-ietf-eman-requirements-13

Abstract

   This document defines requirements for standards specifications for
   energy management.  The requirements defined in this document concern
   monitoring functions as well as control functions.  Monitoring
   functions include identification of energy-managed devices and their
   components, monitoring of their power states, power inlets, power
   outlets, actual power (the instantaneous power, as opposed to the
   demand, which is an averaged power), power attributes, received
   energy, provided energy, and contained batteries.  Control functions
   serve for controlling power supply and power state of energy-managed
   devices and their components.
   This document does not specify the features that must be implemented
   by compliant implementations but rather features that must be
   supported by standards for energy management.
