DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AD01 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Packaged Boilers 

EPCA, as amended by AEMTCA, requires the Secretary to determine whether updating the statutory energy conservation standards for commercial packaged boilers is technically feasible and economically justified and would save a significant amount of energy. If justified, the Secretary will issue amended energy conservation standards for such equipment.  DOE last updated the standards for commercial packaged boilers on July 22, 2009.  DOE issued a NOPR pursuant to the 6-year-look-back requirement on March 24, 2016.  Under EPCA, DOE has two years to issue a final rule after publication of the NOPR.
