<> DE Department of Natural Resourses. v. EPA - 7/21/15. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 13-1093, Consolidated with 13-1102, 13-1104. In this case the State of Delaware, industry and environmental organizations, and an industry intervenor challenge a final rule of U.S. EPA governing the use of certain kinds of power generators -- i.e.  Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines or "backup generators" or "emergency engines."
     The Panel ruled, "We reverse the challenged rules that contain the 100-hour exemption for operation of emergency engines for purposes of emergency demand response. . . remand them to EPA for further action. . . The rest of the 2013 Rule remains in effect."
