Agency Information Collection Extension
EIA submitted an information collection request for extension as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The information collection requests a three-year extension, with only changes to the number of respondents, of Form NWPA-830G, ``Standard Contract for Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuel and/or High-Level Radioactive Waste,'' Appendix G, under OMB Control Number 1901-0260. Form NWPA-830G, ``Appendix G-Standard Remittance Advice for Payment of Fees (including Annex A to Appendix G), which is part of the Standard Contract collects information concerning a company's quarterly payments into the Nuclear Waste Fund of ongoing fees for spent nuclear fuel disposal. Form NWPA- 830G, is a mandatory form that serves as the source document for entries into DOE accounting records to transmit data from purchasers to DOE concerning payment of the Spent Nuclear Fuel Disposal Fee into the Nuclear Waste Fund. Although the Department of Energy determined that, effective May 16, 2014, the Spent Nuclear Fuel Disposal Fee is 0.0 mills per kWh, the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of the General Counsel, given the continuing nature of the Department's statutory responsibilities regarding spent nuclear fuel, directed EIA to continue activities associated with the collection of net electricity generation data.
Energy Conservation Program: Test Procedures for Consumer Warm Air Furnaces; Final Denial of Petition for Rulemaking
This document announces and provides the reasoning for the U.S. Department of Energy's final denial of a petition filed by the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute requesting that DOE initiate a notice-and-comment rulemaking to develop a new combined test procedure for consumer furnaces and furnace fans, which would replace the two currently required performance metrics for furnaces and the one performance metric for furnace fans with a single new metric called ``AFUE2.''
