Extension of Waiver to Panasonic Appliances Refrigeration Systems Corporation of America (PAPRSA) From the Department of Energy Consumer Refrigerator and Refrigerator-Freezer Test Procedures
Document Number: 2017-16447
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-08-04
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') is granting a waiver extension (Case No. RF-047) to Panasonic Appliances Refrigeration Systems Corporation of America (``PAPRSA'') to waive the requirements of the DOE refrigerator and refrigerator-freezer test procedures for determining the energy consumption of a specific combination cooler- refrigerator basic model, PR5181WBC. Under this extension, PAPRSA is required to test and rate this basic model in accordance with the applicable DOE test procedure, with the exception that it must calculate energy consumption using a correction factor (``K-factor'') of 0.85.
Energy Conservation Program: Test Procedure for Room Air Conditioners
Document Number: 2017-16441
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-08-04
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') is initiating a data collection process through this request for information to consider whether to amend DOE's test procedure for room air conditioners (``room ACs''). To inform interested parties and to facilitate this process, DOE has gathered data, identifying several issues associated with the currently applicable test procedure on which DOE is interested in receiving comment. The issues outlined in this document mainly concern issues initially identified in an RFI issued in 2015 considering amendments to the current energy conservation standards and test procedure for room ACs; harmonization with the recently established portable air conditioner (``portable AC'') test procedure; clarification of the test setup and testing conditions; updated industry test procedures for room ACs; and any additional topics that may inform DOE's decisions in a future test procedure rulemaking, including methods to reduce regulatory burden while ensuring the procedure's accuracy. DOE welcomes written comments from the public on any subject within the scope of this document (including topics not raised in this RFI).
