Hara unveils software to help with energy management

At a time when businesses and local governments are trying to reduce their carbon footprints, there are plenty of companies they can hire to measure their greenhouse gas emissions.

Few, however, offer information about carbon, energy, water, waste and other resources, then advise organizations on how to reduce the use of each one and track the results.

So says Hara, a Menlo Park environmental and energy management software company that exits stealth mode today with $6 million in venture financing from Partner John Doerr at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

Founded 18 months ago by Amit Chatterjee and Kleiner Perkins Partner Ajit Nazre, the young company is unveiling the second version of its software service that can monitor and manage natural resource consumption and environmental impact.
