Quadrennial Energy Review: Notice of Public Meeting
At the direction of the President, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE or Department), as the Secretariat for the Quadrennial Energy Review Task Force (QER Task Force), will convene a series of public meetings to discuss and receive comments on issues related to the Quadrennial Energy Review.
Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Refrigeration Equipment
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including commercial refrigeration equipment (CRE). EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to determine whether more-stringent standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would save a significant amount of energy. In this final rule, DOE is adopting more-stringent energy conservation standards for some classes of commercial refrigeration equipment. It has determined that the amended energy conservation standards for these products would result in significant conservation of energy, and are technologically feasible and economically justified.

Delfin LNG LLC; Application for Long-Term Authorization To Export Liquefied Natural Gas Produced From Domestic Natural Gas Resources to Non-Free Trade Agreement Countries for a 20-Year Period
The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) gives notice of receipt of an application (Application) filed on November 12, 2013, by Delfin LNG LLC (Delfin), requesting long-term, multi-contract authorization to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from domestic sources in a volume equivalent to approximately 657.5 billion cubic feet per year (Bcf/yr) of natural gas, or 1.8 Bcf per day (Bcf/d). Delfin seeks authorization to export the LNG for a 20- year term from a proposed floating liquefaction project to be located in West Cameron Block 167 (WC 167) of the Gulf of Mexico, offshore of Cameron Parish, Louisiana (Liquefaction Project). Delfin states that the floating liquefaction facility will be a ``deepwater port'' within the meaning of the Deepwater Port Act (33 U.S.C. 1501, et seq.), and therefore also will require a license from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Marine Administration (MARAD), in conjunction with the U.S. Coast Guard. Delfin seeks authorization under Sec. 3(a) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA), 15 U.S.C. 717b(a), to export this LNG by vessel from the Liquefaction Project to any country with which the United States does not have a free trade agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas (non-FTA countries), and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy. Delfin seeks to export the LNG on its own behalf and as agent for third parties. Delfin requests that this authorization commence on the earlier of the date of first export or seven years from the date the authorization is issued.
