The Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company (HSB), part of Munich Re, is working with EnergySavvy, a leading software provider of energy management technology, to develop tools that help customers make informed decisions about energy usage, Hartford Steam Boiler announced today.

“Homeowners know that conserving energy makes good economic sense,” said Greg Barats, president and chief executive officer of Hartford Steam Boiler.  “But where do they start? Hartford Steam Boiler is designing new services to share our technical knowledge with homeowners so they’ll have a trusted source to find the essential information they need to make better energy choices.”
