The DOE validated the CATALYST energy savings strategy.
STRONG UTILITY SUPPORT
Utilities across the country offer prescriptive incentives for the CATALYST.
Pre-wired kit can be installed into existing HVAC systems or total retrofit.
Demand Control Ventilation (DVC) and Advance Economization improve efficency.
GO BEYOND AUTOMATION
Enhanced insight into the equipment provides detailed fault detection and diagnostics.
PROVEN ENERGY SAVINGS
Cut up to 50% of operational costs with the CATALYST.
What the Industry is Saying
“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.”
Spencer Sator, Product Manager
E Source Technology Assessment Service
multi-speed fan operation, demand controlled ventilation and peak demand shaving capabilities exceeded expectations. NREL sees it is a mature, reliable retrofit technology combining energy efficiency and automated demand response for the small to medium size retail market.
Dr. Michael Deru, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Engineering Manager

AptarGroup Case Study
APTAR LOWERS OPERATING COSTS AND GAINS INSIGHT THROUGH CATALYST INSTALLATION
AptarGroup is a global company that works with product manufacturers to package liquids. These include products like perfumes, creams and soaps in components like bottles, sprays and pumps.
In Stratford, Connecticut, Aptar is an assembly operation. This location is 170,000 square feet and employs 200 workers. They recently added a 45,000 square foot warehouse division and because of Aptar’s commitment to sustainability, it was important to make sure the building was energy efficient.
In addition to upgrading their lighting by replacing two thirds of the interior and exterior lights to LED, HVAC control was at the top of their priority list.
One unique aspect of the building is that there are 31 packaged rooftop units (RTUs) and they needed to tie them into a single energy management system. They also wanted this system to ensure they could participate when the local utility calls for a demand response event.
Timing was another important factor since implementing all of these upgrades at the same time would maximize the available incentives from the United Illuminating Company.
Aptar decided on the CATALYST and eIQ Platform to support their desired energy goals. The CATALYST system would allow them to reduce their energy consumption, enable building asset control, and ensure that they could participate in any demand response events. As an added benefit, the eIQ Platform delivers reporting that measures and validates the total efficiency gains they have achieved after the building upgrades.
Aptar is committed to their sustainability goals and serves as a role model for other companies looking to make their facilities more efficient. As energy demands further increase, it is important that more companies make an effort to reduce their consumption.
The CATALYST, eIQ Platform and LED lighting incentives enabled this Aptar facility to experience an ROI of <1 year.
By upgrading the RTU controls and lighting at the same time, Aptar received an additional
$104,000 in incentives for a total of $204,000 in incentives.
FROM THE CLIENT
“The results of the [CATALYST] energy management system have just been wonderful. It shows you actual reports of the energy you were using versus what you are using now.”
