The Energy Department wants agencies to explain in writing their reasons for not buying energy-efficient products.

The 2005 Energy Policy Act requires executive branch agencies to buy products that meet ENERGY STAR or Federal Energy Management Program standards. Exceptions are allowed.

The Energy Department plans to propose a rule requiring annual reports from each agency, documenting and justifying each exception.

The advance notice of proposed rulemaking is RIN 1904-AB68 in the June 19 Federal Register. Comments are due by Aug. 20.
