Abstract: The concept of energy saving management system based on intelligent agent and embedded
technology is represented here. This system is designed for management of hybrid renewable energy system
(HRES). For testing of suggested approach the prototype grid of energy consumption, production and storage
was designed. This grid contains energy consumption block, production block, inner storage block, external
supplier block, local data acquisition modules and embedded controller (EC). The design of management system
is presented: hardware level with input/output device, embedded controller and super-controller devices. The
formalization of intelligent agents for both side is represented next. Internal agents are autonomic agent, local
agent seller (LAS) and local agent buyer (LAB). LAS and LAB agents use forecast methods for generation of
action. External agents are Agent of Weather Service, Agent Buying Supporter and Agent Selling Supporter.
