This paper surveys state of art technologies used for building energy monitoring and management. Rapid growth of automated meter reading (AMR) technology combined with integrated circuit technology isin the focus of discussion. Combination of smart metering and building management systems (BMS) improves building energy efficiency up to 50%. BMS improve energy through real time monitoring and efficient control techniques, on the other hand AMR provide and store information about energy consumption. Data stored in databases can be used for energy prediction using different techniques like statistical and artificial intelligence approaches. We take in consideration case studies highlighting improvements of energy use when BMS systems installed and the advantages of predicting next hour’s energy consumption.
