Appliance Standards and Rulemaking Federal Advisory Committee:

Working Group To Negotiate a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) for 
Energy Conservation Standards

AGENCY: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of 

[[Page 10153]]

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking; public meetings.


SUMMARY: The Department of Energy (DOE) announces public meetings and 
webinars for the DPPP Working Group. The Federal Advisory Committee Act 
requires that agencies publish notice of an advisory committee meeting 
in the Federal Register.
    On July 30, 2015, ASRAC met and unanimously passed the 
recommendation to form a dedicated purpose pool pumps (DPPP) working 
group to meet and discuss and, if possible, reach consensus on proposed 
Federal rules that would apply to this equipment. The ASRAC Charter 
allowed for 3 months of working group meetings to establish the scope, 
metric, definitions, and test procedure for dedicated purpose pool 
pumps and decide on a path forward at that time. The working group met 
this requirement and now more time is required to discuss potential 
energy conservation standards for this equipment. On January 20, 2016, 
ASRAC met and recommended that the DPPP Working Group continue its work 
to develop and recommend potential energy conservation standards for 
this equipment. This notice announces the next series of meetings for 
this working group.

ADDRESSES: The meetings will be held at U.S. Department of Energy,
