Nowadays, energy consumption demand of buildings is increasing. In the literature, lots of studies were performed related to energy consumption reduction of the buildings and energy efficiency of the buildings in both design and operation and maintenance stages. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is one of the technologies which facilitates collaborations between different expertise areas. The studies showed BIM is a facilitator tool in energy related studies. Also, there are lots of study about BIM enabled Energy Management (EM). However, the mapping of researches on BIM enabled EM has not been attempted by the researchers. Therefore, this study aims to conduct scientometric analysis of BIM enabled Building EM researches between 2010 and 2020. In the study, Web of Science database was used to conduct scientometric analysis. A total number of 637 publications were found in the area of BIM enabled Building EM. In the scientometric analysis, timeline trends, the co-occurrence of keywords, co-citation analysis, and co-authorship analysis were performed. The study results emphasized that sustainability and lifecycle assessment are the hot topics in the BIM enabled Building EM researches. In the regional context, there is a limited study in Turkey.
