... • A workshop to review initial analyses, such as engineering analysis and life cycle cost and payback analysis.1 • Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR)
From page 28...
... Key output information includes: product classes, technology options, design options, product designs, life cycle costs, payback periods, national energy savings, net present values, conversion capital expenses and direct employment impacts. 2 The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 replaces ANOPR with a workshop.
From page 29...
... Key output data include: Life cycle costs, payback periods, industry cash flow, sub-group cash flow, direct employment impacts, competitive impacts, cumulative regulatory burden, utility impacts, national employment impacts, emission estimates, national energy savings and net present values. Based on DOE/EERE management's consideration of the outputs, management decides on the "proposed rule," (i.e., proposed standard level and effective date)
From page 30...
... The statute requires disclosure of annual operating costs and energy consumption. The label must also include a range of comparability for the covered products listed below: • Refrigerators and freezers • Dishwashers • Clothes washers • Water heaters • Furnaces and boilers • Central air conditioners and central air conditioning heat pumps 30

... jointly administer the ENERGY STAR3 program and data developed by EERE are used by EPA and DOE to rank appliances in a given class for efficiency. The program typically selects products in the top 25 percent efficiency for all the appliances in a category to display the ENERGY STAR label.
From page 32...
... It covers a wide range of products including home appliances, heating and cooling equipment, home electronics, office equipment commercial appliances, lighting, windows, etc. DOE/EERE is responsible for the ENERGY STAR labeling for most of the home appliances (e.g., refrigerators, clothes washers, dishwashers and room air conditioners)
