TITLE: Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Air Compressors
AGENCY: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of Energy
ACTION: Final rule
SUMMARY: The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975, as amended ("EPCA"), prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment. EPCA also authorizes DOE to establish standards for certain other types of industrial equipment, including air compressors. Such standards must be technologically feasible and economically justified, and must save a significant amount of energy. In this final rule, DOE is adopting new energy conservation standards for air compressors. It has determined that the adopted energy conservation standards for these products would result in significant conservation of energy, and are technologically feasible and economically justified.
