Groups Threaten To Sue DOE Over 26 Delayed Efficiency Standard Updates

“A coalition of environmental and other groups on Monday threatened to sue the Department of Energy (DOE) over missed deadlines to update energy efficiency standards for products such as appliances.

A notice of intent to sue filed by the organizations says they will sue the Energy Department in 60 days over its failure to update 26 standards.

The groups will likely end up filing their suit, as DOE is not expected to update all of these standards within the time frame.”
