From the Department of Energy Commercial Refrigerator, Freezer, and RefrigeratorFreezer Test Procedures and Partial Granting of an Interim Waiver; Withdrawal Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of Energy. ACTION: Notice of petition for waiver, partial granting of an interim waiver, and request for public comment; withdrawal. 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. Therefore, DOE is withdrawing the notice in its entirety and will republish the notice with corrected calculations and associated discussion. SUMMARY: The notice published at 82 FR 15345 on March 28, 2017, is withdrawn as of April 12, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Bryan Berringer, U.S. Department of Energy, Building Technologies Office, Mailstop EE–5B, 1000 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20585– 0121.

Email: Johanna.Jochum@hq.doe.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DOE is withdrawing its notice of petition for waiver, partial granting of an interim waiver, and request for public comment for AHT from the CRE test procedures. The notice published on March 28, 2017, included an error in the calculations to determine daily energy mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:45 Apr 11, 2017 Jkt 241001 consumption in the alternate test procedure. 82 FR 15345, 15348. 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.

Statutory Authority: The Secretary of Energy is authorized pursuant to the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (Pub. L. 83–703), and the Nuclear NonProliferation Act of 1978 (NNPA) (Pub. L. 95–242) to encourage the widespread use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes, and to cooperate with other nations by distributing nuclear material where appropriate safeguards measures are in place to ensure the material is properly controlled and used for peaceful purposes. In 2005, DOE set aside a portion of its LEU inventory to be used to support the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) International Nuclear Fuel Bank (INFB) initiative, which is envisioned as an LEU reserve that will be administered by the IAEA and that will serve as a back-up for global supply disruptions. Congress later appropriated $49,540,000 in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008 (Pub. L. 110–161) to fund a portion of the INFB. Congress, in the Explanatory Statement accompanying the House Appropriations Committee Print (which in the Act was given the same effect as a joint explanatory statement), noted that the INFB freed up DOE’s LEU set-aside, and recommended DOE also ‘‘allow U.S. interests to purchase uranium fuel from the Reliable Fuel Supply [now the AFS] in the event of supply disruption.’’ (H. Approp. Cmte. Print at 592.) The sale of LEU from the AFS will be conducted consistent with applicable law, the policies and guidance in the ‘‘Secretary of Energy’s 2008 Policy Statement of Management of the Department of Energy’s Excess Uranium Inventory’’ (March 11, 2008), and the DOE Excess Uranium Inventory Management Plan.

If a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff’s issuance of the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) for this proposal. The issuance of a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and state agencies of the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff’s FEIS. There are two ways to become involved in the Commission’s review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the comment date stated below file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit seven copies of filings made in the proceeding with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding. However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission’s rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest.
