Abstract: Research and development centres, as an initial chain of industrial sectors, are amongst large energy consumers worldwide. Thus, implementing energy management system(s) in such centres would be beneficiary to both economy and livelihood of environment. Additionally, harbouring renewable energy sources play a key and strategic role in policies circumventing both energy production/consumption and environment.
