Recent and Ongoing Activities

DOE has published a Federal Register notice of data availability (NODA) publishing an analysis of the energy savings potential of amended industry consensus standards for certain classes of computer room air conditioners (CRACs) and new industry standards for dedicated outdoor air systems (DOASes). DOE is also initiating a data collection process through a request for information (RFI) soliciting information to help DOE determine whether amended standards for classes of CRACs and new standards for DOASes would result in significant energy savings and whether such standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified.

For the latest information on the planned timing of future DOE regulatory milestones, see the current Office of Management and Budget Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions. All planned dates are preliminary and subject to change.
