Aiming at the difficulty of energy management in office building and the choice of energy saving policy, this paper used the Dynamic Game Theory to establish the game model between the manager and the user, which is focusing on the effect of energy saving policy in the micro level. Based on the actual situation of the certain office building, this paper makes use of the developed multi-agent simulation model to analyze the effect after the implementation of energy-saving policy. It provides a theoretical tool which has the practical value for the scientific decision-making of the energy-saving policy for the office building manager. The simulation results show that the user's willingness to cooperate with energy-saving policy is a crucial factor affecting the implementation of energy-saving policy and the reduction of energy consumption.
