The first step to start a reliable process of energy saving and energy conservation on board is the evaluation made by a third party of the use of energy on board. The analysis should start involving all the process: from energy production to the distribution to the final use. On the basis of energy balance, considerations and suggestions on possible improvements are proposed to the customer.
This is, in brief, an energy audit.
The aim is to help the ship owners to study the correct energy management, focusing on energy production, conservation, distribution and utilization.
The outcome of the study includes suggestions on:
- the best way to monitor energy cycle
- possible improvements in terms of operational measures
- possible improvements on the considered ship based on cost effective retrofits
- ideas for news buildings.
Reduction of fuel consumption means competitiveness and reduction of the ship’s environmental impact and, as a consequence, a positive evaluation by vetting and stakeholders of the greener ship’s behavior.
