In Europe, the building sector contributes to around 40% of the total carbon emissions, and the operation of buildings, and especially residential buildings, is a large contributor. Hence tackling the operation and maintenance of residential buildings is an effective way to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. While the operation and maintenance phases of non-residential buildings typically rely on Facilities Management (FM) personnel and Building Management Systems (BMS), FM personnel and BMS are always absent in a standard housing; instead, residents manage their own home individually. Through a scoping literature review, this paper investigates the potential of BMS in promoting energy efficiency, indoor climate comfort and long-term resilience (e.g., managing cold periods and heatwaves), and suitability for the residential environment.
