Background The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a final rule in the Federal Register on August 11, 2015 (‘‘the August 2015 final rule’’) to place in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) the energy conservation standards and related definitions that Congress prescribed for grid-enabled water heaters in the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act of 2015 (EEIA 2015), which amended the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA). 80 FR 48004. Since the publication of that final rule, it has come to DOE’s attention that, due to a drafting oversight, the August 2015 final rule incorrectly omitted a numeral in the equation to determine the energy factor for gridenabled water heaters. This final rule corrects this error, adding the missing numeral. II. Need for Correction As published, the August 2015 final rule contains a typographical error in E:\FR\FM\21AUR1.SGM 21AUR1
