Municipal ZNE/ZNC Technical Assistance Program Overview

The Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN) provides free engineering technical assistance to help local governments save energy and money while reducing their carbon footprints. 

The Municipal ZNE/ZNC Assistance program helps municipalities retrofit or construct buildings to meet zero net energy (ZNE) or zero net carbon (ZNC) goals by providing engineering analysis and recommendations for projects. We can review individual buildings or larger portfolios of buildings and provide recommendations for broader policies as well.
