Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products: Classifying Products as Covered Products
Under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA or the Act), the Department of Energy (DOE or the Department) is proposing to define the term ``household'' and related terms. These definitions would provide a basis for the Department to determine whether the household energy use of products not currently covered by EPCA meets the levels required for DOE to classify a product as a ``covered product'' under the Act; such a classification would mean that DOE potentially could establish energy conservation requirements for the covered product. Once the ``household'' definition is in place, the Secretary may exercise statutory authority to (1) classify as covered products additional qualifying consumer products beyond the products already specified in EPCA, and then (2) set test procedures and efficiency standards for them.
Standards for Business Practices and Communication Protocols for Public Utilities
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is amending its regulations under the Federal Power Act to incorporate by reference the following standards promulgated by the Wholesale Electric Quadrant of the North American Energy Standards Board: Business Practices for Open Access Same-Time Information Systems (OASIS); Business Practices for OASIS Standards and Communication Protocols; OASIS Data Dictionary; Coordinate Interchange; Area Control Error (ACE) Equation Special Cases; Manual Time Error Correction; and Inadvertent Interchange Payback. Incorporating these standards by reference into the Commission's regulations will standardize utility business practices and transactional processes and OASIS procedures.
