AGENCY: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is withdrawing its notice of petition for waiver, partial granting of an interim waiver, and request for public comment for AHT Cooling Systems GmbH and AHT Cooling Systems USA Inc. (‘‘AHT’’) from the commercial refrigerator, freezer, and refrigerator-freezer (‘‘CRE’’) test procedures. The notice published on March 28, 2017, included an error in the calculations to determine daily energy consumption in the alternate test procedure and omitted a step needed to accurately capture the entire defrost energy contribution.

Specifically, the notice included an error in the calculation of tDS, the sum of defrost time per week. The notice incorrectly showed that value calculated as the duration of one defrost cycle divided by the maximum number of defrosts per week. The correct calculation would be the duration of one defrost cycle multiplied by the maximum number of defrosts per week. In addition, the notice omitted the test methodology instructions to capture the entire defrost operation. As published, the test period would only capture the defrost itself and not any pre-cooling or temperature recovery periods that would use more energy along with the defrost. Because of this error and omission, DOE is withdrawing the March 28, 2017, notice in its entirety and will republish the notice to correct the error. While DOE works to expeditiously correct and republish the interim waiver, AHT’s original application will be considered pending and DOE’s enforcement policy on test procedure waivers will apply.1 Issued in Washington, DC, on April 6, 2017.

DOE is committed to making the AFS available to eligible recipients in the case of supply disruptions in the nuclear fuel market. This effort supports the United States Government’s nuclear nonproliferation objectives by supporting civilian nuclear energy development while minimizing proliferation risks. DOE published a Notice of Availability for AFS on August 18, 2011, and published an application on December 2, 2013, in the Federal Register to standardize the information that must be provided in a request to access the material in the AFS E:\FR\FM\12APN1.SGM 12APN1
