The U.S. Department of Energy is initiating a data collection process to consider 'amending the Department's test procedure for small electric motors, and whether new test procedures are needed for motors beyond those subject to the existing Federal test procedures.' The Department of Energy is interested in receiving comment on several issues that it has identified to be associated with the currently applicable test procedure. 'The issues outlined in this document mainly concern applicability of the test procedure to additional motor categories (by topology, horsepower, non-standard construction, etc.), definitions, industry test methods, additional test procedure clarifications, and any additional topics that may inform the Department's decisions in a future test procedure rulemaking, including methods to reduce regulatory burden while ensuring the procedure's accuracy.' The Department of Energy welcomes written comments from the public on any subject within the scope of this document, including topics not raised above.
