DOE Publishes Energy Efficiency Standards Following Court Order

Four delayed energy efficiency standards were published last week in the Federal Register, the final necessary step in making them law.

The new standards were finalized towards the end of 2016, but were withheld from official publication by the Trump Administration.

The Natural Resources Defense Council, Earthjustice, the Attorneys General of 12 states (California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Washington) and New York City, the District of Columbia and California Energy Commission filed a lawsuit to force publications of the standards. After several court battles, the DOE has now been ordered to move forward.

The new standards cover portable air conditioners, uninterruptible power supplies, air compressors, and packaged boilers.

DOE estimates that the new standards will save consumers and businesses about $8.4 billion and cut climate-changing carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 100 million metric tons over a 30-year period.

The new Rule can be read here: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/01/10/2019-26345/energy-conservation-program-energy-conservation-standards
