Extensive research has been done on the centralized building energy system modeling and simulation. However the centralized structure is limited to study and simulate the energy interaction between different buildings at different locations. This paper reviews the building energy consumption model, energy storage system and energy generation system in the Net-zero buildings. Incorporate with the real-time price rate model, this paper develops an agent based simulation framework for distributed building energy system under uncertainty. Each sub system is developed as an agent in the simulation model, and a virtual decision agent is designed to simulate the operation strategy. The energy flow between different agents can be easily monitored from the simulation. The differences between on-peak and off-peak control are demonstrated from the simulation result.
