NRDC Files Lawsuit Against Department of Energy
November 13, 2020

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), joined by several other non-governmental agency plaintiffs, has announced the filing of a lawsuit against the Department of Energy (DOE) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The complaint alleges that DOE is delinquent in meeting its deadlines for 27 different energy conservation standards. According to the announcement, the suit seeks an injunction forcing DOE to promulgate new rules on a court-ordered timeline. A similar lawsuit was filed in 2005 and resulted in a settlement among the parties, all of which agreed to a consent decree setting forth a mandatory rulemaking schedule for the Department.
