This paper presents the implementation of a multi agent system (MAS) for distributed renewable energy (RE) management of a set of eco-building units. Firstly, an introduction to the renewable energy system of a typical eco-building is presented. Secondly, the key problems and requirements existing in the system are proposed and analyzed. Thirdly, hybrid MAS is proposed to design a renewable energy management system. Then, overall frame, agent design, discrete state transition and continuous decision-making algorithm are presented. Finally, the scenario simulation and experiment of certain eco-building units are demonstrated, and the results show the hybrid RE power system based on MAS technology not only balances the power supply and load demand, but also meets the system requirements.
