Based on the demonstrated energy savings and generally favorable payback, we believe the CATALYST is now a viable option for utilities to consider for inclusion in incentive programs.

Transformative Wave, developer of the CATALYST, North America’s leading efficiency solution for constant volume HVAC systems, is proud to have been recognized in the E Source E News article naming the top five ‘Game-Changing Technologies from 2013.’ The article points to leading third-party studies that verified savings and demonstrated that these products – especially the CATALYST – are ready for prime time”. E Source provides unbiased research for utilities and corporations.
“One of our specialties is reviewing the research about vendor claims to determine whether particular technologies can actually deliver on the energy-saving claims they promote,” says Spencer Sator, Product Manager for the E Source Technology Assessment Service. “Based on the demonstrated energy savings and generally favorable payback, we believe the CATALYST is now a viable option for utilities to consider for inclusion in incentive programs.”
In its full research report, Top 20 Technologies and Trends of 2013, E Source named the CATALYST as a top pick partly based on recent positive research findings by the Department of Energy (DOE) through the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E). The DOE-commissioned study reported that 66 RTUs retrofitted with the CATALYST across four climate zones yielded an average savings of 57% in normalized HVAC energy use. The SDG&E study also showed positive results and provided additional credibility to the energy saving potential of the CATALYST.
Danny Miller, President of Transformative Wave comments; “I don’t know of a more respected organization in the efficiency industry than E Source. They have been tracking our CATALYST technology for several years when there was understandable skepticism about our ability to deliver the results we were claiming. E Source is clearly committed to providing its clients with recommendations based on supportive evidence, not anecdotal stories. With that in mind, it is a real honor for us to be included on this list, and even more so to have be named number one.”
