Introduction to the Catalyst EEC
We want to thank you for the opportunity to introduce the
CATALYST: Efficiency Enhancing Controller. This patent-pending
retrofit technology adds dynamic control to constant volume HVAC
systems and produces dramatically more efficient operation. It
represents a new, unprecedented frontier of energy savings
opportunities. It is the result of classic ingenuity combined with
the capabilities of some of the world’s leading manufacturing firms.
Exclusive distribution rights for the CATALYST are held by
Transformative Wave Technologies (TWT), a wholly owned subsidiary of
the Performance Mechanical Group. TWT developed the technology
in-house, has proven the savings potential in the field, and brought
the technology to the marketplace. In 2009, Yaskawa America
was selected as the manufacturer for the CATALYST controller.

The CATALYST technology is built on proven hardware that has been
utilized in the industrial and commercial sectors for decades. At
the same time it makes use of the latest technological advances in
HVAC system control. The CATALYST controller has a small footprint
which enables it to be easily installed inside the HVAC equipment
cabinet. It integrates readily with existing thermostats or building
management systems. The technology combines several well-practiced
efficiency measures with our proprietary Opti-Run fan control logic
to create a highly intelligent system. This custom
microprocessor-embedded program effectively manages the system’s
operation without compromising comfort or indoor air quality.
The CATALYST has a short return on investment (ROI), especially
when combined with utility funding. Virtually any existing HVAC unit
can be retrofitted with the CATALYST to achieve dramatic energy
savings. Options for improving the efficiency of older existing HVAC
equipment have historically been limited or economically unfeasible.
The CATALYST will make a major contribution toward the energy
conservation goals of utilities, business operators, and public
