Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Packaged Boilers
Document Number: 2016-06588
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-24
Agency: Department of Energy
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer equipment and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including commercial packaged boilers. EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to periodically determine whether more stringent standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would save a significant amount of energy. DOE has tentatively concluded that more stringent standards are technologically feasible and economically justified, and would result in significant additional conservation of energy. Therefore, DOE proposes amended energy conservation standards for commercial packaged boilers. This document also announces a public meeting to receive comment on the proposed standards and associated analyses and results.
