Efforts to tackle energy deficit have become a global challenge. Not a day passes by without global media outlets publishing on the subject of energy management and this has drawn public attention since it is not only help users to monitor and control their power consumption easily, but also reduce their electricity bill. Ghana Airport Company has been facing a challenge of paying high electricity tariffs as a result of the non-aeronautical service providers at the airport. This has cause revenue lost as a result of misuse of certain equipment’s in the various departments in the company. Various scheduling models have been proposed to optimize power consumption. However, they are few solutions to prevent the blackout while optimizing power consumption. We design and implement Energy Management system (EMS) which can autonomously control the power consumption below a given threshold while negotiating electricity consumption with the smart grid system. By keeping the power consumption below a given threshold autonomously, the power demand will not exceed the available supply, therefore can prevent the blackout. Since the threshold can be negotiated with the smart grid system, company satisfaction can be increased.
