Enhar assists business, schools, utilities and government organisations reduce energy consumption and costs. We provide detailed energy audits, including level 1 and level 2 energy audits, energy monitoring and targeting and help unlock governments grants available for sustainability and energy efficiency.

Enhar is a Melbourne based firm specialising in providing Energy Audits and Energy Management Plans and Reports for organisations in Victoria and throughout Australia. Our services are tailored for commercial, industrial and educational premises including Schools.

Our services are designed to support client organisations who are committed to reducing running costs and improving productivity and work environments. Energy efficiency achieves these goals while also delivering environmental benefits.

Our team has extensive experience of working with businesses to implement energy efficiency, through energy audits, grant scheme applications (such as CTIP, SRSB) and verification of energy savings.

Our experience is at the ‘coal face’ of assisting individual organisations  to improve energy efficiency through changes to hardware, software and behaviour. We have worked with Schools, manufacturers and local government to identify energy saving opportunities, create business cases for upgrades and improvements, and measure the savings.

We therefore understand the success factors for effective energy efficiency projects to make them meaningful to real organisations facing real pressures. We understand the commercial context in which Australian organisations make their energy and productivity-related decisions.

Enhar supports businesses to achieve their energy management goals through a number of services, including:
