An Energy Management System (EMS) is a monitoring tool that tracks buildings energy consumption with the purpose of enhancing energy efficiency, by identifying savings opportunities and misuse situations. To achieve this, EMSs collect data flowsdata streams-from a network of energy meters and sensors, which are then combined into useful information. Data must be processed in real-time, to support a timely decision making process. Traditionally EMSs use Database Management Systems (DBMSs) to

This work explores the feasibility of Data Stream Management Systems (DSMSs) to support Energy Management applications, pointing out how to implement an EMS capable of real-time data processing.
