Energy Catalyst Wins Manufacturing Award – Scale for ClimateTech (event supported by NYSERDA) held a clean energy pitch competition in NYC this past week highlighting five innovative, early-stage manufacturers of clean energy technologies  . The technologies presented included novel improvements for bottle reuse and electric car chargers, but it was the Double Hybrid heat pump from Energy Catalyst Technologies (a NYGEO member and Albany based manufacturer or high efficiency geothermal heat pumps)  that took home the grand prize of $20,000 towards finalizing their manufacturing process. “By this winter, we will have 11 homes that are heated by Double Hybrid heat pumps” said founder Matt Desmarais. “We plan to launch our 3rd generation Double Hybrid in the spring, which can replace a hot water boiler and reuse all the existing infrastructure.”  See the press release on the competition here.
