DOE Seeks Info on Conservation Standards for Commercial Air Conditioning and Heating Equipment

Posted in on Fri, Mar 1, 2013

The US Department of Energy (DOE) is initiating an effort to determine whether to amend current energy conservation standards for certain commercial air-conditioning and heating equipment.  DOE seeks information from the public to help DOE determine whether national standards more stringent would result in a
significant energy savings and whether those national standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified.  DOE also seeks information on the merits of adopting the integrated energy efficiency ratio (IEER) as the energy efficiency descriptor for small, large, and very large air-cooled commercial air conditioners and heat pumps.  Written comments and information are requested on or before March 4, 2013.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-02-01/html/2013-02164.htm
