Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Microwave Ovens
The U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') is initiating an effort to determine whether to amend the current energy conservation standards for microwave ovens. Under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975, as amended, DOE must review these standards at least once every six years and publish either a notice of proposed rulemaking (``NOPR'') to propose new standards for microwave ovens or a notice of determination that the existing standards do not need to be amended. This request for information (``RFI'') solicits information from the public to help DOE determine whether amended standards for microwave ovens would result in significant energy savings and whether such standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified. DOE welcomes written comments from the public on any subject within the scope of this document (including topics not raised in this RFI).
Notice of FY 2019 BETO-Wide Request for Information (RFI)
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) invites public comment on its Request for Information (RFI) number regarding FY 2019 Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) research priorities, as part of its annual planning process. The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders to help ensure research areas are relevant, timely, appropriate for federal government funding, and aligned with Administration priorities.
Commission Information Collection Activities (FERC-725J) Comment Request; Extension
In compliance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission or FERC) is soliciting public comment on the currently approved information collection, FERC-725J (Definition of the Bulk Electric System) which will be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for a review of the information collection requirements.
