EPA has released a third revision to the SNE test procedure that takes into account stakeholder comments received to date and refines the testing process. EPA will consider written comments on this draft submitted to networking@energystar.gov that are received by December 10, 2010. Following review of these comments, EPA will circulate the final test method and officially launch dataset development.

Test Procedure - Revision 2

EPA has released a second revision to the SNE test procedure and has commenced with a data collection effort. EPA encourages stakeholders to run the procedure on a range of equipment and to forward to EPA both test data acquired using the procedure and written suggestions on any further revisions.
