The heating, ventilation and Air conditioning (HVAC) system in Pakistan consumes more than 50% of total energy utilized by the building sector. Due to current energy crises in Pakistan there is a need renewed focus on energy optimization in building sector. The aim of this research paper is to reduce building HVAC system energy consumption by implementing chiller plant management system to control on electrical energy consumption in existing primary HVAC system (Chillers, Pumps, Boilers and Cooling towers). The Johnsons control international building automation protocol has been implemented with weather load profile of Pakistan (Islamabad). The chiller plant management system has improved plant performance and decreased annual energy consumption. The results of implemented modern chiller plant management system shows at least 12.57% of energy saving. It is also observed that the chiller plant management system closely follow outdoor dynamic weather profile and indoor load profile.
