The project's purpose was the development of a voluntary energy consumption reporting system for the maritime industry. The project was scheduled in three phases: Phase I included the development of appropriate measures of output and energy efficiency for different categories within the maritime industry and the estimation of energy consumption in each of the different categories; Phase II included the development and testing of survey questionnaires; Phase III included the implementation of the reporting system and the development and implementation of computer-based methods for analyzing the reported data. Phase II was completed as President Carter began outlining his plans for a consolidated Department of Energy, and the Maritime Administration (MarAd) suspended its work on the energy reporting system. In addition to the Phase II objective of testing a reporting form, the survey yielded some useful information on energy consumption and energy conservation opportunities within the maritime industry. This information, despite its statistical limitations, was judged to be of sufficient interest to MarAd and the industry to warrant its publication. This report provides an overview of energy consumption in the maritime industry and identifies opportunities for improving energy utilization.
