Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Residential Dishwashers
The U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE") is undertaking an early assessment review to determine whether to amend energy conservation standards for dishwashers. Specifically, through this request for information ("RFI"), DOE seeks data and information that could enable the agency to determine whether DOE should propose a "no new standard" determination because a more stringent standard: Would not result in a significant savings of energy; is not technologically feasible; is not economically justified; or any combination of foregoing. DOE also seeks comment on the consideration of standards for a "short cycle" product class, as well as on any subject within the scope of this document (including those not topics not specifically raised in this RFI). DOE also requests submission of data and other relevant information concerning this early assessment review.
