DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AC28 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Energy Efficiency Standards for Certain Commercial and Industrial Electric Motors 
Abstract: Consistent with changes made by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA 2007), DOE is amending its electric motor standards by expanding the scope of the electric motors that would be regulated. Under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended, DOE must publish a final rule determining whether to amend its standards no later than 24 months after the effective date of the previous final rule. 
Agency: Department of Energy(DOE)  Priority: Economically Significant 
RIN Status: Previously published in the Unified Agenda Agenda Stage of Rulemaking: Proposed Rule Stage

Action Source Description Date
Final  Statutory    12/19/2012 

Statement of Need: EPCA requires minimum energy efficiency standards for certain appliances and commercial equipment, including commercial and industrial electric motors.

Summary of the Legal Basis: Title III of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA or the Act), Public Law 94?163 (42 U.S.C. 6291?6309, as codified), established the Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products Other Than Automobiles. Pursuant to EPCA, any new or amended energy conservation standard that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) prescribes for certain products, such as electric motors, shall be designed to achieve the maximum improvement in energy efficiency that is technologically feasible and economically justified (42 U.S.C. 6295(o)(2)(A)), and result in a significant conservation of energy. (42 U.S.C. 6295(o)(3)(B))

Alternatives: ALTERNATIVES The statute requires DOE to conduct rulemakings to review standards and to revise standards to achieve the maximum improvement in energy efficiency that the Secretary determines is technologically feasible and economically justified. In making this determination, DOE conducts a thorough analysis of the alternative standard levels, including the existing standard, based on the criteria specified by the statute

Anticipated Costs and Benefits: Because DOE has not yet proposed candidate standard levels for this equipment, DOE cannot provide an estimate of combined aggregate costs and benefits for these actions. DOE will, however, in compliance with all applicable law, issue standards that provide the maximum energy savings that are technologically feasible and economically justified. Estimates of energy savings will be provided when DOE issues the notice of proposed rulemaking for this equipment.
