On September 26, 2014 the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a notice in the Federal Register regarding its determination surrounding ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2013 (79 FR 57900).

Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technical Advisory Committee (HTAC)
This notice announces an open meeting of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technical Advisory Committee (HTAC). The Federal Advisory Committee Act, Pub. L. 92-463, 86 Stat. 770, requires notice of the meeting be announced in the Federal Register.
Proposed Agency Information Collection
EIA has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance, under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, for the natural gas survey forms (OMB-1975-0175). EIA requests a three-year clearance for the following forms: EIA 176, ``Annual Report of Natural and Supplemental Gas Supply and Disposition,'' EIA 191, ``Monthly and Annual Underground Natural Gas Storage Report,'' EIA-757, ``Natural Gas Processing Plant Survey,'' EIA 857, ``Monthly Report of Natural Gas Purchases and Deliveries to Consumers,'' EIA-910, ``Monthly Natural Gas Marketer Survey,'' and EIA-912, ``Weekly Underground Natural Gas Storage Report.'' The proposed data collection will make minor changes to the forms and instructions to provide clarity. The number of respondents for EIA- 191, EIA-857 and EIA-757 has been increased to reflect recent survey frame research which has identified new respondents. Data confidentiality procedures for protecting the identifiability of submitted data remain unchanged for all forms with the exception of a portion of Form EIA-191. EIA is also proposing a change to the published revision policy for Form EIA-912, a Principal Federal Economic Indicator. In addition, EIA is proposing specific changes to several of the forms; these changes are described in detail in the ``Supplementary Information'' section below.
