DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AC85 Publication ID: Spring 2015 
Title: Energy Conservation Standards for Single Package Vertical Air Conditioners and Single Package Vertical Heat Pumps 

This rulemaking amends energy conservation standards for single package vertical air conditioners (SPVAC) and single package vertical heat pumps (SPVHP). The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for SPVAC and SPVHP and directs DOE to review those standards in light of the latest industry standards for that equipment. DOE must adopt the latest industry standard unless DOE determines that there is clear and convincing evidence supporting the adoption of more stringent levels.
