Appliance and Equipment Energy Efficiency Standards

Last updated: 5 November 2017
This Department of Energy (DOE)-managed program develops, promulgates and enforces test procedures and minimum energy efficiency standards for residential appliances and certain commercial equipment. Under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 and the Energy Policy Act 2005 the Department of Energy is required to review and set new appliance efficiency standards and these are regularly amended. Federal energy conservation standards that have gone into effect since 1988 are projected to save a cumulative total of 75 quadrillion Btus (quads) of energy by the year 2045.
