This notice amends the Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration Notice of Reestablishment of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Advisory Committee (the Committee) and Solicitation of Nominations for Membership of June 23, 2014 (79 FR 35524) to revise the eligibility criteria to permit federally- registered lobbyists to apply for membership on the Committee. The Department of Commerce recently revised its policy regarding appointment of federally-registered lobbyists to Department advisory committees following a policy clarification by the Office of Management and Budget that the eligibility restriction does not apply to advisory committee members who serve in a representative capacity (see 79 FR 47482). Notwithstanding the language in the Committee charter, the Secretary of Commerce (the Secretary) will now consider nominations of federally-registered lobbyists for appointment on the Committee. We are in the process of amending the charter. This notice also extends the deadline for submitting applications to August 29, 2014. All other eligibility criteria continue to apply. In June 2014, the Department of Commerce reestablished the Committee. The Committee advises the Secretary regarding the development and administration of programs and policies to expand the competitiveness of U.S. exports of renewable energy and energy efficiency goods and services, in accordance with applicable United States regulations. The Committee's work on energy efficiency focuses on technologies, services, and platforms that provide system-level energy efficiency to electricity generation, transmission, and distribution. These include smart grid technologies and services, as well as equipment and systems that increase the resiliency of power infrastructure. For the purposes of this Committee, covered goods and services will not include vehicles, feedstock for biofuels, or energy efficiency at it relates to consumer goods. Non-fossil fuels that are considered renewable fuels (e.g., liquid biofuels and pellets) are included.
