Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Walk-In Coolers and Freezers; (120 page(s), in English)
Notice of proposed rulemaking and announcement of public meeting via webinar on Wednesday, 27 September 2023 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time - The Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended ("EPCA"), prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including walk-in coolers and freezers ("walk-ins" or "WICFs"). 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 walk-ins, and also announces a public meeting to receive comment on these proposed standards and associated analyses and results. See section VII, "Public Participation," for webinar registration information, participant instructions, and information about the capabilities available to webinar participants.
