Energy Conservation Program: Notice of Petition for Waiver of Store It Cold From the Department of Energy Walk-In Cooler Refrigeration System Test Procedure, and Notice of Grant of Interim Waiver
Document Number: 2019-06100
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-03-29
Agency: Department of Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') announces receipt of and publishes a petition for waiver from Store It Cold, which seeks a waiver from the test procedure used for determining the efficiency of walk-in cooler refrigeration system basic models. Store It Cold seeks to use an alternate test procedure to address issues involved in testing certain basic models identified in its petition. Store It Cold asserts in its petition that for the specified [deg]CoolBot[supreg] Walk-In Cooler refrigeration system basic models taking ``refrigerant- side'' measurements with refrigerant mass flow meters yields results that are unrepresentative of the basic models' true energy consumption characteristics and provides materially inaccurate comparative data. Accordingly, Store It Cold seeks to test and rate the basic models identified in its petition using its recommended alternate test procedure, in which the refrigeration capacity is measured using psychrometric ``air-side'' measurements. This document announces that DOE is granting Store It Cold with an interim waiver from DOE's walk-in cooler refrigeration system 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 Store It Cold's petition and its suggested alternate test procedure to inform its final decision on Store It Cold's waiver request.
