Since 1999, the Houston Renewable Energy Group (HREG) educates residents in the Houston metro area on renewable energy technologies, energy efficiency, conservation and green building techniques and innovations. The group also serves as the local chapter of the Texas Solar Energy Society. HREG’s members, who are primarily renewable energy enthusiasts, engineers, architects, specialists, system designers and users, work diligently to demonstrate a viable approach to sensible energy conservation and generation and cleaner air. We represent a bold vision for a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable world that will not only benefit Houstonians but the global community as well.
A variety of events and initiatives are organized annually around the following topics:
HREG engages individuals interested in playing an active role in building a sustainable community and sharing their knowledge about renewable energy with others. Some of our current HREG members, RE enthusiasts, engineers, architects, specialists, and users have been part of renewable energy interest groups throughout the 1980′s and 90′s. Many are professionals, entrepreneurs, investors and researchers who make connections, learn information relevant to business and influence public buying patterns about renewable energy.
