Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Residential Water Heaters, Direct Heating Equipment, and Pool Heaters (147 pages, English)
The U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE") is initiating an effort to determine whether to amend the current energy conservation standards for consumer water heaters. This request for information ("RFI") solicits information from the public to help DOE determine whether amended standards for consumer water heaters would result in significant energy savings and whether such standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified. DOE welcomes written comments from the public on any subject within the scope of this document (including topics not raised in this RFI).
