BACnet .org promotes very highly instrumented sustainable buildings, focusing on infrastructural capital required to manage heat, light, electricity, building access, and other problems. Relying on Internet Protocol IETF and World Wide Web W3 standards for its most abstract controls reduces the scope of the software side of the effort to SNMP MIBs which integrate most facility management in the network operations centre.

At the largest level of integration, an eco-city, BACnet provides the base standards for signal infrastructure which support ECG's service- and business process model. These are optimized to make the same distinctions and discernments as civic best practices supported in a public sector facility applying both e-democracy and e-government.
