Abstract

To address the issue of energy waste caused by a special relationship between the manager and users in public buildings, game theory is introduced to motivate users to modify their behaviors. Without any additional cost, this could lead to a win-win situation between the manager and the users. To address the challenge that players are usually limited in rationality in practice, both social factors and psychological factors are introduced to build an improved behavioral ultimatum game. Some experiments have been carried out to test the presented method. The experimental results indicate that it could motivate users to save energy through design of an appropriate incentive mechanism.
