Energy-saving is currently receiving much public attention, but it is an urgent matter for U.S. Navy ships which must prepare in peace to fight a modern war. Designs of new ships, particularly those powered by gas turbines, can incorporate substantial energy-saving measures (e.g., GOGAS). Certain ship alterations to save energy not only increase military effectiveness, but are quite advantageous from a strictly financial viewpoint. For ships as they exist today, measures are suggested which can be implemented by all concerned, from Flag Officer to the Fireman on the deck plates.
