Energy Efficiency Program for Commercial and Industrial Equipment: Efficiency Standards for Commercial Heating, Air Conditioning and Water Heating Equipment
AGENCY: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of Energy.
ACTION: Preliminary Screening Analysis
SUMMARY: The Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended by the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPCA), establishes energy efficiency standards for certain commercial heating, air conditioning and water heating equipment. On October 29, 1999, the efficiency standards in American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE) and Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) ASHRAE/IES Standards 90.1 were amended for some of these products. This notice outlines the process the Department plans to follow in deciding which of these amended efficiency standards to adopt immediately and which to analyze further.
