WHOLE FOODS NATIONAL ROLLOUT SEES EARLY ENERGY SAVINGS OF 42% WITH CATALYST
Whole Foods is the world’s leader in natural and organic foods. With more than 438 stores in North America and the United Kingdom, Whole Foods also leads the charge for energy conservation which has earned them numerous the EPA Green Power Partner of the Year awards.
After evaluating the effectiveness of the CATALYST as part of a research study performed by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for the Department of Energy, Whole Foods was ready to execute a full rollout of CATALYST technology across its North American portfolio.
The CATALYST is being applied to rooftop packaged units (RTUs) across stores in each of Whole Foods’ North American regions. Whole Foods utilizes a combination of both the full CATALYST and CATALYST Lite applications as well as the eIQ Platform for building automation control, performance reporting, advanced fault detection and diagnostics.
With 1,181 rooftop units installed with CATALYST technology to-date, the results have shown an astounding annual savings of over 15,246 MWh across the sites that have been installed. This equates to a 42% reduction in overall energy cost and consumption for Whole Foods.
FROM THE CLIENT
“The significant energy savings and quality installation process are just two of the reasons we selected CATALYST and Transformative Wave as our partner for RTU retrofits across the United States and Canada.”
