Aligned towards net zero energy building goals, building energy management systems will consider energy utilization efficiency improvement, energy cost reduction and renewable energy technology utilization to serve the local energy loads in building structures with dispersed resources. The distributed management of building energy system in this paper describes a semi-centralized decision making methodology using multi-agent systems for building energy management system in electrical, heating
