Agency: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office (EERE)
Parent Agency: Department of Energy (DOE)
DOE may classify a type of consumer product as a covered product if it meets criteria outlined in 42 USC 6292(b).

This is a proposed coverage determination, among other things, that computer servers meet the criteria to be considered a covered product.
