  Epact - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Epacts are used to find the date in the lunar calendar from the date in the common solar calendar.
Whenever the epact reaches or exceeds 30, an extra (so-called embolismic or intercalary) month has to be inserted into the lunar calendar; then 30 has to be subtracted from the epact.
Therefore the epacts are in units of 1/30 of a lunation (also called a tithi).

The whole system of epacts is based on the Metonic Lunar Cycle (otherwise known as the Cycle of Golden Numbers), and serves to indicate the days of the year on which the new moons occur.
It is generally held that the Last Supper took place on the Jewish Feast of the Passover, which was always kept on the fourteenth day of the first month of the old Jewish calendar.
We have defined an epact as the age of the moon on 1 January, i.e.

 Epact™ Impact Measuring System
Epact was developed in 2003 by DevStudios International Inc. as part of a consultative process with the United Way of Alberta Capital region, as well as United Ways in Vancouver, Calgary, Victoria, Winnipeg, Peel, Toronto, and the United Way of Canada.
Finally, epact provides a user customizable reporting infrastructure that not only allows for the creation of a wide range of reports but also allows for reports to be published electronically on the United Way’s website, thus making the impact of the organization more tangible and visible to the public.
Epact has seen strong adoption in Canada, and through an innovative adoption program, we are working on making it the number one tool in the United States.

This addition of one to the Epacts is known as the Lunar Equation, and occurs at the beginning of the years 1800, 2100, 2400, 2700, 3000, 3300, 3600, 3900, 4300, 4600, etc. A second disturbance of the Epacts is caused by the occurrence of the non-bissextile centurial years.
From this arrangement it is evident that if, for example, the Epact of a year is X, the new moons will occur in that year on the days before which the Epact X is placed in the calendar.
To take an example: the Epact of 1696 (its Golden Number being 6) is XXVI, and since this Epact is found opposite 4 February in the Church calendar we know that in 1696 the new moon happened on that date and that consequently 23 February was the twentieth day of the calendar moon.

 Energy Policy Act (EPAct): Federal Fleet Requirements
EPAct requirements apply to certain fleets of 20 or more LDVs that are centrally fueled or "capable of being centrally fueled" and are primarily operated in a Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA)/Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area (CMSA).
Compliance with EPAct is met by AFV acquisition credits, which are granted on the basis of the number of AFVs acquired and the quantity of biodiesel fuel used.
The Energy Conservation Reauthorization Act of 1998 (ECRA) amended EPAct to allow fleets to generate one AFV acquisition credit for every 450 gallons of pure biodiesel (B100, equivalent to 2,250 gallons of B20) purchased for use in diesel vehicles more than 8,500 lb GVWR.

 EPACT 1992
Under the new law some of the most common and least efficient lamps (light bulbs and fluorescent tubes) cannot be made or imported into the U.S. Fortunately, the market has an ample supply of highly efficient substitutes.
EPACT sets minimum efficiency standards for some of the most common products: incandescent reflector lamps (R), parabolic reflector lamps (PAR), 4 and 8 foot fluorescent lamps and U-bent lamps (U).
EPACT nudges the lighting industry and consumers to lamps that use energy more efficiently and provide better colors.

 White Paper - EPAct 2005 Tax Deduction Provisions
EPAct 1992 required the phased elimination of several popular types of fluorescent and incandescent lamps, and began the deregulation process of the $300 billion electric power industry.
EPAct 2005 is considered to be less ambitious on energy’s demand side than its supply side, but does include a number of energy conservation provisions supported by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), several of which are of great interest to the lighting community.
EPAct 2005, Section 1331, states: “There shall be allowed as a deduction an amount equal to the cost of energy efficient commercial building property placed in service during the taxable year.”

 EPAct 2005 Offers Accelerated Tax Deduction for Lighting Systems
Estimated to cost the U.S. government about $14.5 billion over 10 years, EPAct 2005 is the biggest overhaul of the national energy policy since 1992.
Although considered less ambitious on energy's demand side than its supply side, EPAct 2005 does include a number of energy conservation provisions — several of which are of great interest to the lighting community.
The amount of the deduction is the lesser of $1.80 per square foot or the costs incurred/paid for the energy-efficient property.

 Energy Policy Act Requires Purchase of Light-Duty Alternative Fuel Vehicles
The U.S. Department of Energy's primary goals are to decrease the nation's dependence on foreign oil and increase energy security through the use of domestically produced alternative fuels.
EPAct recognizes the following alternative fuels: methanol, ethanol and other alcohols; blends of 85 percent or more of alcohol with gasoline; natural gas and liquid fuels domestically produced from natural gas; biodiesel; liquefied petroleum gas (propane); coal-derived liquid fuels; hydrogen and electricity.
Under Section 303 of EPAct, federal fleets must acquire a specified number of alternative fuel vehicles each year, as a percentage of their annual light-duty vehicle acquisitions.

SUMMARY The Energetic Particles: Acceleration, Composition and Transport (EPACT) investigation is designed to make comprehensive observations of solar, interplanetary, and galactic particles over wide ranges of charge, mass, and intensity using a combination of 8 different particle telescopes.
The EPACT investigation must make measurements over an extremely broad range of elements, energies, and intensities.
As a result, EPACT consists of multiple telescopes that also provide a level of protection against single-point fialures.

Hence the epacts of those years are numbers 11 and 22.
In a leap year, however, the remainder is 10, which introduces such complexities that the chief and almost sole use of the epact is in determining the date of Easter.
The epacts differ from the Golden Numbers, from which they are derived, in that they provide for the adjustment of (1) the solar equation, a correction of the Julian Calendar, and (2) the lunar equation, a correction of the error in the lunar cycle.

Under the ruling, DOE is to determine whether or not the mandates will be implemented, and must publish a proposed rule by the end of January 2003, with the final rule by the end of November 2003.
A group of environmentalists have asked the Northern California District Court to hold several federal agencies in contempt of court for failure to comply with the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) and for failure to comply with the Court's order directing the agencies to report on their past, present and future EPAct compliance.
The action is an effort to force twelve federal agencies to comply with the July 2002 court order requiring eighteen federal agencies to submit their overdue EPAct compliance reports to Congress by November 26, 2002 and to make these reports available to the public via the Federal Register and the Internet by January 31, 2003.
