To accelerate the penetration of high-efficiency products into appliance and equipment markets, the Accelerated Standards Action Program will deploy a series of "market-based" actions that address market barriers arising from the lack of information. It will encourage consumers to purchase a best-in-class efficient products and thereby set the stage for the future enhancement of current standards.
