DOE Seeks Info on Possible Gas Compressor Energy Conservation Standard

Posted in on Thu, Aug 7, 2014

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is considering establishing energy conservation standards for commercial and industrial compressors.  To date, DOE has proposed to consider energy conservation standards only for compressors intended to compress air, rather than gas. As a result, DOE’s current efforts have focused solely on air compressors. However, DOE is also aware that compressors used to compress natural gas may also use a substantial amount of energy. To improve its understanding of natural gas compressors and their related markets, DOE requests information, comment, and supporting data about the characteristics and energy use of this equipment.  Comments are due September 4, 2014.
