Research Institution
An innovative energy monitoring system and process are needed to provide real time energy usages for our Fleet. This information process needs to consolidate and get that data to every ship so they have the capability to monitor and track their energy usages and adjust consumption to meet Navy goals while meeting all operational requirements. This Phase I research will focus on the development of a meta-model to monitor, measure and assess shipboard energy usage, develop conservation system integration concepts, and define methods to deliver energy awareness in support of Navy energy goals. Analytical modeling will establish the feasibility of developing the technology into a useful product for the Navy fleet installations and commercializing it for other potential customers. PRD will identify the capabilities and requirements and detail how innovative activities can be integrated with existing shipboard and pier-side capabilities to provide a holistic, integrated concept for energy savings and sustainment/measurement. The development of a shipboard capability to set energy conservation measures across key energy consuming systems, and then sense, control and report the ship"s conservation performance is the primary goal of the Phase I meta-model that PRD intends to conceptualize in support of ship energy use monitoring and analysis.
