Title: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Refrigerators, Freezers, and Refrigerator-Freezers 

Consistent with the requirements under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended by the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is examining whether to amend the current energy conservation standards currently in place for commercial refrigeration equipment found at 10 CFR 431.66. As a result of this effort, DOE may propose and adopt more stringent standards or issue a determination that no amendments to the current standards are required. Once completed, this rulemaking will fulfill DOE’s statutory obligation to either amend the standards for this equipment or determine that the standards do not need to be amended.
