This paper discusses about how automation plays its role in achieving sustainable energy management in broadly two aspects, industries and homes. Industrial or factory automation has its own benefits, and techniques have been evolved to cut down the power usage to significant levels of the conventional ways using Variable Frequency Drives (VFD). Home automation is equally important, controlling electrical appliances through microcontrollers and saving electricity automatically detecting their usage needs. It also discusses about the requisites for energy management and the economic aspect of using energy management systems.
