Energy Conservation Standards for Refrigerated Bottled or Canned Beverage Vending Machines: Public Meeting and Availability of the Framework Document
Document Number: 06-5838
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-06-28
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE or Department) will hold an informal public meeting to present its proposed methodologies for conducting this rulemaking, discuss issues relevant to this rulemaking proceeding, and initiate stakeholder interaction in this rulemaking proceeding. The Department is also interested in information that will assist it in establishing energy conservation standards for refrigerated bottled or canned beverage vending machines. (These types of equipment are referred to collectively hereafter as ``beverage vending machines.'') The Department encourages written comments on these subjects. This effort is the result of the directive in the Energy Policy Act of 2005 to DOE to establish energy conservation standards for such equipment by August 8, 2009. To inform stakeholders and facilitate this process, DOE has prepared a Framework Document, a draft of which is available at http:// www.eere. energy.gov/buildings/ appliancestandards.
Rate Regulation of Certain Natural Gas Storage Facilities
Document Number: 06-5642
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-06-27
Agency: Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) is amending its regulations to establish criteria for obtaining market- based rates for storage services offered under part 284. First, the Commission is modifying its market-power analysis to better reflect the competitive alternatives to storage. Second, pursuant to the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the Commission is promulgating rules to implement new section 4(f) of the Natural Gas Act, to permit underground natural gas storage service providers that are unable to show that they lack market power to negotiate market-based rates in circumstances where market-based rates are in the public interest and necessary to encourage the construction of the storage capacity in the area needing storage services, and where customers are adequately protected. These revisions are intended to facilitate the development of new natural gas storage capacity while protecting customers.
Lyle Falls Fish Passage Project
Document Number: E6-9999
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-06-26
Agency: Bonneville Power Administration, Department of Energy
This notice announces BPA's intention to prepare an EIS on proposed improvements to the Lyle Falls Fishway in Klickitat County, near Lyle, Washington. The improvements would ease fish passage to upstream high quality habitat in the Klickitat Basin and improve capabilities to trap and handle adult fish. The project is designed to meet state and Federal fish passage criteria for all salmonid species, including mid-Columbia steelhead, which are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. This action may involve floodplains and wetlands located in Klickitat County, Washington. In accordance with DOE regulations for compliance with floodplain and wetlands environmental review requirements, BPA will prepare a floodplain and wetlands assessment and will design this proposed action in a manner so as to avoid or minimize potential harm to or within the affected floodplain and wetlands. The assessment and a floodplain statement of findings will be included in the EIS being prepared for the proposed project in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act.
Renewable Energy Production Incentives
Document Number: E6-9998
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-06-26
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office
The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy today proposes to amend its regulations for the Renewable Energy Production Incentives (REPI) program to incorporate changes made to the enabling statute by section 202 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. The REPI program provides for production incentive payments to owners or operators of qualified renewable energy facilities, subject to the availability of appropriations. The statutory changes that DOE is proposing to implement through amendments to Part 451 relate primarily to allocation of available funds between owners or operators of two categories of qualified facilities, incorporation of additional ownership categories, extension of the eligibility window and program termination date, and expansion of applicable renewable energy technologies. In addition to the changes required by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005), DOE is modifying the method for accrued energy accounting in light of the new law. DOE also is taking this opportunity to make minor changes to update the regulations.

Type: Notice
Date: 2006-06-26
Agency: Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration
The Deputy Secretary of Energy confirmed and approved Rate Order No. WAPA-127 and Rate Schedules PD-NTS2 and INT-NTS2, placing rates for Network Integration Transmission Service (Network Service) for the Parker-Davis Project (PDP) and the Pacific Northwest-Pacific Southwest Intertie Project (Intertie) of the Western Area Power Administration (Western) into effect on an interim basis. The Deputy Secretary of Energy also confirmed Rate Schedules DSW-SD2, DSW-RS2, DSW-FR2, DSW-EI2, DSW-SPR2, and DSW-SUR2, placing ancillary services rates from the PDP, Boulder Canyon Project (BCP), Central Arizona Project (CAP), and that part of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP) located in the Western Area Lower Colorado (WALC) Balancing Authority and Transmission Operations Area (BATO) into effect on an interim basis. The provisional rates will be in effect until the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) confirms, approves, and places them into effect on a final basis or until they are replaced by other rates. The provisional rates will provide sufficient revenue to pay all annual costs, including interest expense, and repay power investment and irrigation aid, within the allowable periods.
Regulations for Filing Applications for Permits To Site Interstate Electric Transmission Corridors
Document Number: 06-5619
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-06-26
Agency: Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) is proposing regulations in accordance with section 1221 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 to implement filings requirements and procedures for entities seeking to construct electric transmission facilities.

Revisions to the Blanket Certificate Regulations and Clarification Regarding Rates
Document Number: 06-5618
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-06-26
Agency: Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) proposes to amend its blanket certification regulations to expand the scope and scale of activities that may be undertaken pursuant to blanket authority. The Commission proposes to expand the types of natural gas projects permitted under blanket authority and to increase the cost limits that apply to blanket projects. In addition, the Commission will clarify that a natural gas company is not necessarily engaged in an unduly discriminatory practice if it charges different customers different rates for the same service based on the date that customers commit to service.
Alternative Fuel Transportation Program; Alternative Compliance
Document Number: E6-9928
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-06-23
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office
The Department of Energy (DOE) today publishes a proposed rule to implement section 514 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992, as amended by section 703 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which allows States and alternative fuel providers to petition for a waiver of the alternative fueled vehicle (AFV) acquisition requirements in 10 CFR part 490. The new law requires a State entity or alternative fuel provider requesting a waiver to show that in lieu of complying with the applicable AFV acquisition requirement for a model year, it will take other actions to reduce its annual petroleum motor fuel consumption by an amount equal to 100 percent alternative fuel use in all of the fleet's AFVs, including AFVs that the State entity or alternative fuel provider would have been required to acquire if there was no waiver.
