Energy Conservation Program for Certain Commercial and Industrial Equipment: Test Procedure for Commercial Packaged Boilers
Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of Energy.
Request for information (RFI); reopening of the comment period.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has initiated a rulemaking and data collection process to consider amendments to DOE's test procedures for commercial packaged boilers, starting with an RFI published in the Federal Register on February 20, 2014. As part of that process, DOE is considering the potential for adoption of part-load efficiency measurement as part of this test procedure rulemaking and welcomes comment on a variety of related issues. Due to technical difficulties with the email address for the RFI, this document announces a new email address to submit comments, data, and information, and reopens the comment period through April 16, 2014.
DOE will accept written comments, data, and information regarding the test procedure for commercial packaged boilers published February 20, 2014 (79 FR 9643) received on or before April 16, 2014.
Interested persons are encouraged to submit comments electronically. However, interested persons may submit written comments, data, and other related information regarding the RFI for commercial packaged boilers, identified by docket number EERE-2014-BT-TP-0006 or Regulation Identifier Number (RIN) 1904-AD16, by any of the following methods:
Instructions: All submissions received must include the agency name and docket number and/or RIN for this rulemaking. No telefacsimilies (faxes) will be accepted.
Docket: The docket is available for review at , and will include Federal Register notices, public meeting attendee lists and transcripts, comments, and other supporting documents/materials throughout the rulemaking process. All documents in the docket are listed in the index. However, not all documents listed in the index may be publicly available, such as information that is exempt from public disclosure.

On February 20, 2014, DOE published a notice in the Federal Register announcing a request for information about test procedures for commercial packaged boilers. 79 FR 9643. The notice requested that comments, data, and information be submitted to on or before the close of the comment period March 24, 2014. Due to technical difficulties associated with the rulemaking inbox established in the Federal Register notice and in order to provide interested parties with an adequate opportunity to submit their comments and related information, DOE has established a new email address where interested parties may submit comments to and has determined that it is appropriate to reopen the comment period. Accordingly, DOE is hereby reopening the comment period and will consider any comments received on or before April 16, 2014 to be timely submitted. DOE continues to seek comment on a variety of issues it has identified; these issues mainly concern part-load operation and efficiency, appropriate operating conditions both for part-load and full-load operation, and the integration of part-load measurements into the applicable energy efficiency metric. Although DOE welcomes comment on all aspects of its test procedure, DOE is particularly interested in receiving comments and data from stakeholders and the public on these topics.
Issued in Washington, DC, on March 31, 2014.
Kathleen B. Hogan,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
