Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for External Power Supplies ; (63 page(s), in English)
Notice of proposed rulemaking and announcement of public meeting via webinar on Wednesday, 1 March 2023 - The Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended ("EPCA"), prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including external power supplies ("EPSs"). EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE") to periodically determine whether more-stringent, standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would result in significant energy savings. In this notice of proposed rulemaking ("NOPR"), DOE proposes amended energy conservation standards for EPSs, and also announces a public meeting to receive comment on these proposed standards and associated analyses and results.
