BayREN - Bay Area Regional Energy Network

BayREN offers region-wide energy programs, services and resources to members of the public by promoting energy efficient buildings, reducing carbon emissions and building government capacity.

Get the complete details about BayREN when you visit the website.

BayREN is a significant project in our ABAG portfolio of services; we help single family residents, property owners and businesses get technical assistance and financial resources to find the best approach in reducing energy costs. We also assist local governments in evaluating and improving compliance with state energy code.

BayREN is a collaboration of the nine Bay Area counties and is successful in large part due to the expertise, knowledge and proven track record of local-government ABAG members.

Connecting to Communities

BayREN provides energy conservation solutions for residents—solutions that better connect to local communities than what is typically possible from a large utility. In addition, BayREN provides services across jurisdictions that city-only programs cannot achieve.

BayREN Governance

Governance is through the “Coordinating Circle,” which includes representation from ABAG and all nine Bay Area counties.​

Technical Assistance Portal

The Technical Assistance (TA) Portal has a variety of resources for local agency staff.
