Title IV of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 directs EPA to establish a "recoverable waste energy inventory program" in cooperation with the Department of Energy and state energy offices. This inventory program is composed of a Survey of major industrial and large commercial combustion sources, and a Registry of Recoverable Waste Energy Sources.

On July 23, 2009, EPA issued a proposed rule that included the criteria for including sources or sites in a Registry of Recoverable Waste Energy Sources, and the Survey processes by which EPA will collect data and populate the Registry. Under this action, EPA will publish a rule establishing criteria for including sites in the Registry of Recoverable Waste Energy Sources.

This site provides summaries of priority rulemakings and priority retrospective reviews of existing regulations. We update most of the site at the beginning of each month, though some data is updated more frequently if it is time sensitive. The information on this site is not intended to and does not commit EPA to specific conclusions or actions. For example, after further analysis, EPA may decide the effects of a rule would be different or it may decide to terminate a rulemaking.
