Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Manufactured Housing
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is announcing this notice of data availability (``NODA'') and soliciting public input regarding data relating to certain aspects in developing energy conservation standards for manufactured housing. These data are likely to help serve as support for DOE's further refinement of certain aspects of its proposed standards for these structures. They may also serve as the basis for DOE's restructuring of its approach in laying out the framework for standards that would apply to manufactured housing. DOE is seeking comment on these data along with several options that it is currently considering that could form an alternative basis for regulating the energy efficiency of manufactured housing. DOE also seeks any additional information that might further inform the agency's views regarding the manner in which to regulate these structures.

Notice of Request for Information (RFI) on H2@Scale (Hydrogen at Scale): Determining Opportunities To Facilitate Wide-Scale Hydrogen Adoption for Energy Security and Economic Growth
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) invites public comment on its Request for Information (RFI) on H2@Scale (Hydrogen at Scale): Determining Opportunities to Facilitate Wide-Scale Hydrogen Adoption for Energy Security and Economic Growth. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is specifically interested in information to quantify the increasing industrial demand for hydrogen, to identify and quantify the available domestic resources capable of generating sufficient hydrogen to sustainably meet the demand in the near- to long-terms across multiple sectors, and to identify opportunities to leverage current industrial infrastructure to better meet the growing demands for hydrogen across sectors.
Notice of Request for Information (RFI) on Understanding Catalyst Production and Development Needs at National Laboratories
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) invites public comment on its Request for Information (RFI) to understand research, capabilities and yet-to-be addressed challenges pertinent to production scale-up of catalysts for the conversion of biomass and waste streams. Additionally, through this RFI, the Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) seeks to understand enhancement capabilities of process development units at the National Laboratories in order to increase their impact.
Interlocking Officers and Directors; Requirements for Applicants and Holders
The Commission proposes to revise its regulations related to interlocking officers and directors to clarify and update the requirements for both applicants and holders. In particular, the Commission proposes to update its regulations to reflect statutory changes to the circumstances in which an applicant who would otherwise require Commission authorization to hold an interlocking position need not do so. The Commission also proposes to revise its regulations to clarify its position on late-filed applications and informational reports. The Commission further proposes to revise its regulations to clarify that an interlock holder is not required to file a notice of change when merely changing positions within a holding company. Additionally, the Commission proposes to revise its regulations to state that applicants do not need to list in their applications public utilities that do not have officers or directors. Next, the Commission proposes to revise its regulations with regard to public utilities owned by a natural person. Finally, the Commission proposes to update its regulations to remove a section containing definitions and phrases now rendered obsolete.
