Abstract:

As the Navy continues to emphasize increasing Energy Security, many energy saving technologies and programs are in development and implementation to reduce the Navys energy consumption and reliance on foreign energy sources. The Maritime Energy Portfolio Management Approach is a methodology to effectively identify, evaluate, prioritize, and manage energy saving technology and initiative installations on Ships through the Maritime Energy Portfolio Interface and Decision Aid. The Maritime Energy Portfolio Interface and Decision Aid is a dynamic graphic user interface backed by an intelligent database that allows for quick graphical data analysis, status tracking, and Scenario Analysis for progress toward established energy goals and recourse optimization. By increasing the effectiveness of managing the Maritime Energy Portfolio we enhance our responsiveness and reduce total ownership cost.
