Not covered by this traditional management model is Energy Management, which is rapidly becoming a critical area of concern worldwide, as seen in [ISO50001].

                       Energy Management Framework


   This document defines a framework for Energy Management (EMAN) 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.
