Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
Pursuant to the America's Water Infrastructure Act, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) is proposing rules to establish an expedited process for issuing original licenses for qualifying facilities at existing nonpowered dams and closed-loop pumped storage projects. Under the expedited process, the Commission will seek to ensure a final decision will be issued no later than two years after the Commission receives a completed license application. The Commission proposes to codify the rules in a new part that will be added to the Commission's regulations.
Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products: Energy Conservation Standards for Residential Furnace Fans; Correction
Document Number: 2019-01242
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Department of Energy
On July 3, 2014, the U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') published a final rule adopting new energy conservation standards for residential furnace fans (hereafter the ``July 2014 final rule''). This correction addresses typographical errors that appear in both the preamble of the July 2014 final rule and regulatory text in the Code of Federal Regulations (``CFR''). In certain locations (primarily table headings), the units for fan energy rating (``FER'') were inadvertently listed as ``Watts/cfm.'' This document corrects the units designation to ``Watts/1000 cfm.'' Neither the error nor the corrections in this document affect the substance of the energy conservation standards rulemaking or any conclusions reached in support of the final rule.
