Title: Energy Conservation Standards for Computers 

DOE has tentatively determined that computer and battery backup systems (computer systems) qualify as covered products under part A of title III of EPCA, as amended.  DOE has not previously conducted an energy conservation standard rulemaking for computers systems.  If, after public comment, DOE issues a final determination of coverage for computer systems, DOE may prescribe both test procedures and energy conservation standards for computer systems.
