The Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA) directs the Department of Energy (DOE) to establish energy conservation standards for various consumer products and commercial and industrial equipment, including refrigerated bottled or canned beverage vending machines (beverage vending machines), for which DOE determines that energy conservation standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would result in significant energy savings. DOE is publishing this Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANOPR) to: (1) Announce that it is considering establishment of energy conservation standards for beverage vending machines; and (2) announce a public meeting to receive comments on a variety of related issues.
