Building energy management systems (BEMS) must consider energy utilization efficiency improvement, energy cost reduction, and renewable energy technology utilization in order to serve local energy loads in building structures with dispersed resources. The distributed management of building energy system proposed in this paper utilizes a semi-centralized decision-making methodology using multi-agent systems for BEMS for electrical, heating, and cooling energy zones with combined heat and power system optimizations aimed at improving energy efficiency and reducing energy costs. A case study is presented to demonstrate the validity of the proposed energy management scheme.
