Harvest Thermal won the People's Choice Award at the US DOE National Renewable Energy Lab's Industry Growth Forum. It was the fifth major award for innovation in the past seven months for the start-up manufacturer of ultra-low carbon home heating, cooling, and hot water systems.
"We're enormously grateful that our thermal battery solution for home heating was awarded the People's Choice Prize by expert climate tech investors and fellow entrepreneurs", said Dr. Jane Melia, CEO of Harvest Thermal. (pictured 3rd from right) "It mirrors our customers' passion for their systems that slash their home's carbon footprint while delivering lower monthly heating bills and superior comfort."
Harvest Thermal Pod, an AI-driven, cloud-enabled controller limits the runtime of a single all-electric heat pump to midday when electricity is low-cost and clean. The thermal battery system stores hot water in a tank that distributes heat and hot water to the home whenever needed. The system consistently cuts carbon emissions by 90% compared to gas equipment, 50% lower than a two-heat pump solution, while lowering bills monthly electric bills by one-third.
Two weeks ago, Melia walked the Red Carpet at Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies Festival and received her company's award for Small Businesses. That same week, Harvest Thermal took a Silver at the Edison Awards for Sustainable Design in the Consumer Solutions category. In October, Melia was named 100 Women of Influence of 2022 by Entrepreneur Magazine and was awarded the top ClimateTech prize at VERGE22 Accelerate competition in addition to winning the Buildings category.
