EPCA Reform Draft Released
April 2, 2018

The House Committee on Energy and Commerce has announced the release of a discussion draft to modernize the Energy Policy Conservation Act (EPCA). The long-awaited legislation aims to increase the time between reviews of standards to eight years from the current six years, increase transparency, ensure test procedures are completed before rules are issued, define energy savings for subsequent rulemakings on covered products, and give the agency some flexibility to decide if a new standard is necessary. The Committee has not yet determined a hearing date, but has requested feedback in the interim.
