Title: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial and Industrial Pumps  

EPCA, as amended, authorizes the Secretary to determine whether establishing energy conservation standards for commercial and industrial pumps is technically feasible and economically justified and would save a significant amount of energy.  On June 13, 2013, DOE published a notice of intent to establish a negotiated rulemaking working group for the manufactured housing rulemaking under the Appliance Standards and Rulemaking Federal Advisory Committee (ASRAC) in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) and the Negotiated Rulemaking Act (NRA) to negotiate proposed Federal standards for the energy efficiency of commercial and industrial pumps (78 FR 44036). The purpose of the working group was to discuss and, if possible, reach consensus on a proposed rule for the energy efficiency of commercial and industrial pumps. The working group has negotiated standard levels that were accepted by ASRAC on July 7, 2014.  As a result, DOE will conduct a rulemaking to consider adopting the working groups recommendations.
