The focus of the Energy Management (EMAN) framework is energy monitoring and management of energy objects [RFC7326]. The scope of devices considered are network equipment and their components, and devices connected directly or indirectly to the network. The EMAN framework enables monitoring of heterogeneous devices to report their energy consumption and, if permissible, control. There are multiple scenarios where this is desirable, particularly considering the increased importance of limiting consumption of finite energy resources and reducing operational expenses.

             Energy Management (EMAN) Applicability Statement


   The objective of Energy Management (EMAN) is to provide an energy    management framework for networked devices.  This document presents    the applicability of the EMAN information model in a variety of    scenarios with cases and target devices.  These use cases are useful    for identifying requirements for the framework and MIBs.  Further, we    describe the relationship of the EMAN framework to other relevant    energy monitoring standards and architectures.
