DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AE68 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Energy Conservation Standards for Refrigerated Bottled or Canned Beverage Vending Machines 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has initiated an effort to consider amending energy conservation standards for refrigerated bottled or canned beverage vending machines (BVMs). Once completed, this rulemaking will fulfill DOE’s statutory obligation to either propose amended energy conservation standards for these products or to determine that the existing standards do not need to be amended. To this end, DOE must determine whether national standards more stringent than those currently in place would result in a significant amount of energy savings and whether such amended national standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified.
