USA seeks for comments on energy efficiency test procedures for battery chargers
September 24, 2020

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a Request for Information (RFI) soliciting comments on possible revisions to the energy efficiency regulations for battery chargers covered by EPCA, which means any charger that is capable of charging batteries for a consumer product, including chargers that may be embedded as components of other consumer products.

The DOE is interested in comments on:

1.How to alter test procedures for battery chargers so that it lessens the burden on regulated industries

2.Whether there are viable test procedures for wireless chargers, most of which are not currently subject to energy efficiency standards

3.Possible testing procedures for testing battery chargers that are not shipped with the product they are intended to charge

4.New or third-party developed test procedures that might more accurately capture a battery charger’s energy efficiency.

As part of this RFI, DOE was also seeking feedback on the extent of how the battery charger test procedures could affect the growth of the smart appliances market.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a Request for Information (RFI) soliciting comments on possible revisions to the energy efficiency regulations​ for external power supplies covered by EPCA.

DOE seeks data and information that could enable the agency to determine whether the DOE should propose a “no new standard” because of a more stringent standard and requests the following feedback to determine if it ​Would not result in a significant savings of energy, Is not technologically feasible, economically justified.
