Reforming the Energy Policy and Conservation Act: Learning from Experience on Energy Efficiency Open Access
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, grants the Department of Energy (DOE) broad authority to regulate the maximum energy intensiveness of everyday household appliances such as microwaves and dishwashers.
