Notice of Petition for Waiver From Johnston Boiler Company From the Department of Energy Commercial Packaged Boiler Test Procedure
Document Number: 2016-13891
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-06-13
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
This notice announces receipt of a petition for waiver from Johnston Boiler Company (Johnston) seeking an exemption from specified portions of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) test procedure applicable to commercial packaged boilers. Johnston contends that some of their commercial packaged boilers cannot be accurately tested using the currently applicable DOE test procedure and, as a result, seeks to use an alternate test procedure to test these basic models. DOE solicits comments, data, and information concerning Johnston's petition and the suggested alternate test procedure.
Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Portable Air Conditioners
Document Number: 2016-13549
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-06-13
Agency: Department of Energy
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, sets forth various provisions designed to improve energy efficiency for consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment. In addition to specifying a list of covered residential products and commercial equipment, EPCA contains provisions that enable the Secretary of Energy to classify additional types of consumer products as covered products. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has previously published a proposed determination of coverage to classify portable air conditioners (ACs) as covered consumer products under the applicable provisions in EPCA. In this document, DOE proposes energy conservation standards for portable ACs following its notice of final determination of coverage. This document also announces a public meeting to receive comment on these proposed standards and associated analyses and results.
Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Dehumidifiers
Document Number: 2016-12881
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-06-13
Agency: Department of Energy
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 dehumidifiers. 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. In this final rule, DOE is adopting more- stringent energy conservation standards for dehumidifiers. 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.
Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Battery Chargers
Document Number: 2016-12835
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-06-13
Agency: Department of Energy
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975, as amended (``EPCA'' or in context, ``the Act''), prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including battery chargers. EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'' or, in context, ``the Department'') to determine whether Federal energy conservation standards for a particular type of product or equipment would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would save a significant amount of energy. On March 27, 2012, DOE published a notice of proposed rulemaking (``NOPR'') to establish energy conservation standards for battery chargers. Responding to stakeholder comments, DOE updated its analysis and revised its proposed approach, resulting in a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (``SNOPR'') published on September 1, 2015. After considering all the stakeholder comments responding to the SNOPR, DOE is adopting the proposed energy conservation standards for battery chargers in this final rule. DOE has determined that these standards will result in the significant conservation of energy and are technologically feasible and economically justified.
