This paper proposes decentralized energy management system (DEMS) consisting of center and sensor nodes. The center node has an ability to control sensor nodes which contain sensors and controllers of electricity. We show data on electrical power consumption of Osaka Prefectural Government Sakishima Building (Cosmo tower) located at Osaka Sakishima District. We prototyped a center node and sensor nodes and measure temperature and light strength in Asia Trade Center Building located at Osaka Sakishima District. We propose an indicator of human theremal demand using temperature and light strength measured by the prototype system.
