Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Refrigeration Equipment
The U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE" or "the Department") announces the availability of the preliminary analysis it has conducted for purposes of evaluating the need for amended energy conservation standards for commercial refrigerators, freezers, and refrigerator- freezers ("commercial refrigeration equipment" or "CRE"), which is set forth in the Department's preliminary technical support document ("TSD") for this rulemaking. DOE will hold a public meeting via webinar to discuss and receive comment on its preliminary analysis. The meeting will cover the analytical framework, models, and tools used to evaluate potential standards for this equipment, the results of preliminary analyses performed by DOE, the potential energy conservation standard levels derived from these analyses (if DOE determines that proposed amendments are necessary), and other relevant issues. In addition, DOE encourages written comments on these subjects.
