Standards and Test Procedures
The Department of Energy (DOE) establishes energy efficiency standards for certain appliances and equipment, and currently covers more than 50 different products. Authority to undertake this effort was granted by Congress, and DOE follows a four phase process when reviewing existing and developing new standards. Each Product page provides information on recent updates, current standards and test procedures, waivers, exceptions, and exemptions, statutory authority, and historical information.
