Industry 4.0 is concerned with sustainable development constraints. In this context, we propose a multi-agent architecture, named EasySched, aiming at elaborating predictive and reactive scheduling as the result of a coordination between systems producing goods and systems producing renewable energy. The validation of this architecture is original, and was conducted in a completely and physically distributed way, using networked embedded systems. This validation was done on a series of
