The Department of Energy released its Final Plan for Retrospective Analysis of Existing Rules August 23, identifying as many as 13 rules for potential review as part of a final plan to reduce regulatory burdens. The plan is in response to Executive Order 13,563, which requires federal agencies to review and revise existing regulations to determine which could be eliminated or revised. Candidates for review include regulations on various water heater, electric motor, and commercial refrigerator efficiency standards, policy statements on fuel cycle analyses, ARPA-E reporting requirements, and administrative procedures for various industries.
