Hara’s enterprise software platform for energy and sustainability management dramatically reduces energy costs and risks to substantially improve operating profit margins, increase shareholder value and enhance sustainability.

The Time to Act is Now

Strategic management and optimization of energy consumption is a here and now opportunity. Companies and organizations are leveraging new technologies, innovation, best practices and benchmarks to drive success and transform their businesses in a transparent environment.

As strategic energy management moves up in priority, it is also following a parallel path of increasing importance for executives across industries. Better decision support is needed to set top-down targets and caps, and to track the effectiveness of capital being deployed in energy efficiency related projects. Bottoms-up demand side consumption data needs to be aggregated and matched with supply side information, including energy prices and contractual terms. Having these systems and visibility in place enables companies to manage energy price and usage volatility.
