                    Requirements for Energy Management


   This document defines requirements for standards specifications for    Energy Management.  The requirements defined in this document are    concerned with monitoring functions as well as control functions.    Monitoring functions include identifying energy-managed devices and    their components, as well as monitoring their Power States, Power    Inlets, Power Outlets, actual power, Power Attributes, received    energy, provided energy, and contained batteries.  Control functions    include such functions as 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 lists features that must be    supported by standards for Energy Management.
