Energy

The Association of Bay Area Governments and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission offer regional-scale energy efficiency programs and services that deliver targeted climate solutions focused on energy, water and resilience. 

  • Bay Area Energy Atlas: This database of PG&E account-level electricity and natural gas consumption shows how energy is being used in jurisdictions, and can be filtered by geography, population density, income level or industry, thereby assisting local governments with climate action planning to reduce energy consumption.
  • Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN): Builds local government capacity to increase energy efficiency in individual jurisdictions through training, free engineering technical assistance, and a range of related resources, including:
  • Clean Building Compass: An online clearinghouse of tools, case studies, templates and resources to assist cities in developing and adopting building decarbonization policies.
  • Model Solar Ordinance Toolkit: Helps local governments in the transition to rooftop solar energy in their cities, with a set of customized information, data, templates and recommended language for establishing new regulations.
