Comments to DOE on Energy Efficiency Standards for Federal Buildings

We submitted comments to the Department of Energy (DOE) on its proposed rule to strengthen energy conservation standards for new and renovated federal buildings. Our comments offer support for the agency's choice to apply the social cost of greenhouse gases to estimate the climate effects of the proposed standards. We also suggest that DOE apply additional analysis using draft updated climate-damage valuations that the Environmental Protection Agency recently released.
