Input Sought on Possible Improvements to Energy Test Procedures for Various Products

The U.S. Department of Energy has launched a data and information collection process to better understand whether there are provisions in its energy test procedures for consumer appliances and industrial equipment that could be improved to produce results that are more representative of average use cycles or periods of use. Over time, many of the DOE’s test procedures have been amended to account for products’ increased functionality and modes of operation. The agency is now seeking information to ensure that the inclusion of measurement provisions in its test procedures associated with such increased functionality has not inadvertently compromised the measurement of representative average use cycles or periods of use and made some test procedures unnecessarily burdensome.

Interested parties may submit input in connection with this information collection process by 17 May. The DOE particularly welcomes suggestions for reducing or avoiding regulatory burdens within the context of measuring average use cycles or periods of use.
