b.) When can a RAC with connected functionality use the connected allowance described in Section 3A of the Version 4.0 ENERGY STAR RAC specification? Follow

Even when a RAC  meets all of Section 4 criteria, it is not eligible for the connected allowance until has been tested and certified to the final ENERGY STAR Test Method for Room Air Conditioners to Validate Demand Response.  The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is responsible for development of the Demand Response test method.  EPA will notify all stakeholders when the test method is finalized.  For an example of a final Demand Response test method, see the Test Method to Validate Demand Response for Residential Refrigerators, Refrigerator-Freezers, and Freezers.
