We have used Catalyst for several years now and still have Ian McKenna as our contact. I found arranging our contracts harder and harder as different suppliers used different pricing structures and terminology. Ian has been extremely helpful and saved us time and money. If we had any questions relating to our electricity suppliers or contracts we would not hesitate to contact him. I would recommend Ian and Catalyst to anyone who, like me, might struggle to make sense of the complexities of the energy business.

Ian McKenna is a persistent pest (but very worthwhile and welcome). I am extremely busy but he keeps badgering me when I forget to respond in a timely manner. I am sure that without Ian's persistence and patience we would not get the best prices on our fuel. Thanks Ian.

Duncan Jackson

12 September 2013 by Duncan Jackson (Ardington Ltd)

Have always found Ian McKenna and the Catalyst crew to be very knowledgeable and helpful. Achieved a great combined contract for 16 separate sites, with different sites joining at varying times as old contracts expired. They were always quick to respond and I would recommend them to anyone!

Catalyst and Ian Mc Kenna have helped our business through the minefield of energy bills and have negotiated prices for us that have not only save a significant amount of money, but have removed the need for us to leave deposits with the energy companies.

Colin Hughes

11 September 2013 by Colin Hughes (Newlay Concrete Ltd)

I have used Catalyst to organise our electricity contracts at two manufacturing sites for the past four years, Ian McKenna was our contact and I am extremely impressed by his professionalism. He was able to negotiate on our behalf cost effective contracts far superior than we could achieve. We have recently taken over a third factory in Hull, and I will be in touch with Ian when that contract is up for renewal.

C. Wolfe

11 September 2013 by C. Wolfe (Bosmore Park Estate)

This is a brilliant service, so convenient not to have to source the best deal. Ian McKenna has looked after us along with Red Kite Farms Ltd for some years now and has been very helpful. I wouldnt consider doing anything else other than emailing Ian.

I have used Ian McKenna at Catalyst for the past few years for our gas and electricity supply renewals. On each occasion he has provided an excellent, smooth and efficient service

I have been dealing with Ian McKenna who has always delivered a first class service, very helpful,reliable and knowledgeable of the brand he is representing .I have tried other quotation companies and they do not match the service that Catalyst have provided me .i will continue to use this service and would recommend to others.

John Flounders

23 August 2013 by John Flounders (Shire Leasing)

We have always found the whole process of getting electricity quotes difficult and complicated, and this is compounded by the poor level of service that we have received from energy companies over the years. From several recommendations I received, this year we turned to Catalyst to do this work on our behalf. What a breath of fresh air this was and I wish I had turned to them years ago. Not only did they compare a massive range of suppliers for us they were able to provide a wide range of different options to. They have helped us save money on our existing contract and have gone over and above to help us manage and control our energy costs going forward. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone, and have no desire to ever do this exercise again in the future. Thank you for making this so much easier to understand and your advice and support is really appreciated.

Chris Campbell

I have used the services of Chris at Catalyst for numerous energy projects over the years and I have always found his level of service and compared to other energy consultant companies I have previously used his attention to detail absolutely outstanding, His ability to understand my exact requirements and then provide a solution that over delivered every time, will keep me coming back again and again

Response: Thanks for your review, we always aim to understand our customer's needs and provide the best solution for your needs.


24 June 2013 by David (A&K Valeting)

Found them to be extremely helpful and they explained everything to me as we went along as I am a bit of a newbie to all of this. They then kept me up to date all the way through the process and helped me save a small fortune. Would certainly recommend them to family or friends.

John Blamire

Thanks to Catalyst who found me a great price on our gas and saved me over ?2k, all in about 10-minutes of talking to them. Would have no hesitation in recommending them to my friends.

Response: Thanks for you review, and thank you for your business.

Thanks for a quick quote that was half of our renewal price and thanks for sorting out my billing problem to. Great service and highly recommended.


18 June 2013 by Mark (P N D Autos)

Really impressed with the level of service, I am only a small garage, yet they were quick to help me out and saved me a small fortune. So glad that I phoned and some body explained everything to me in great details. Thanks chaps!


09 June 2013 by Charlie (Apex Recruitment)

Got my quotes and found a cheaper supplier in about 10-minutes, I found it easy to use and understood the price comparison section. Have now swapped over to a cheaper company and saved my self about ?400 a year by doing so. Really pleased with this and was able to do this at the weekend when I have a bit more spare time away from the office.

Paula Kingsbury

A great and quick way to compare gas prices, easy to understand and took me less than 5-minutes to get some quotes and change supplier.

Absolutely outstanding service and first class results, we were about to go out of our contract, as we had left things to late to review and Catalyst acted quickly and efficiently to find us a better deal. There quotes were clear and the person that explained all the options to me was very knowledgeable. We have saved a small fortune, and I will be back again to use Catalyst as they have saved me a lot of time and money.

Thank you so much, for all your hard work, its taken a few days for me to get back to you. But I am so pleased with the work that you have done and the amount of money that you have saved us. I don't know why I even bothered to do this on my own in the past.
