From the Department of Energy Room Air Conditioner Test Procedure and Notice of Grant of Interim Waiver Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of Energy. ACTION: Notice of petition for waiver and grant of an interim waiver, and request for comments. AGENCY: This document announces receipt of and publishes a petition for waiver from LG Electronics USA, Inc. (‘‘LG’’), which seeks an exemption from the U.S. Department of Energy (‘‘DOE’’) test procedure used for determining the efficiency of specified room air conditioner basic models. LG seeks to use an alternate test procedure to address issues involved in testing the basic models identified in its petition. According to LG, the current DOE test procedure for room air conditioners, which provides for testing at full-load performance only, does not take into account the benefits of room air conditioners that use variable-speed compressors (‘‘variable speed air conditioners’’), with their part-load performance characteristics, and misrepresents their actual energy consumption. LG requests that it be permitted to test the specified basic models at four rating conditions instead of a single rating condition and to calculate the test unit’s weightedaverage combined energy efficiency ratio (CEER), which can then be compared to the expected performance of a comparable single-speed room air conditioner across the same four rating sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:58 Jun 28, 2018 Jkt 244001 conditions. The performance improvement would be applied to the measured performance of the variablespeed room air conditioner when tested under the high-temperature rating condition of the DOE test procedure for room air conditioners to determine the test unit’s final rated CEER value. DOE grants LG an interim waiver from the DOE’s room air conditioner test procedure for the specified basic models, subject to use of the alternate test procedure as set forth in the Interim Waiver Order. DOE solicits comments, data, and information concerning LG’s petition and its suggested alternate test procedure to inform its final decision on LG’s waiver request. DATES: Written comments and information are requested and will be accepted on or before July 30, 2018.

Background and Authority The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (‘‘EPCA’’ or ‘‘the Act’’),1 Public Law 94–163 (42 U.S.C. 6291– 6317, as codified), among other things, authorizes DOE to regulate the energy efficiency of a number of consumer products and industrial equipment. Title III, Part B 2 of EPCA established the Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products Other Than Automobiles, a program that includes room air conditioners, which are the subject of this document. (42 U.S.C. 6292(a)(2)). DOE regulations set forth at 10 CFR 430.27 contain provisions that allow any interested person to seek a waiver from test procedure requirements for a particular basic model when the petitioner’s basic model for which the petition for waiver was submitted contains one or more design characteristics that either (1) prevent testing according to the prescribed test procedure, or (2) cause the prescribed test procedures to evaluate the basic model in a manner so unrepresentative of its true energy consumption characteristics as to provide materially inaccurate comparative data. 10 CFR 1 All references to EPCA in this document refer to the statute as amended through the EPS Improvement Act of 2017, Public Law 11–115 (January 12, 2018). 2 For editorial reasons, upon codification in the U.S. Code, Part B was re-designated Part A.
