Abstract

In the past few years, energy efficiency has received increasing attention in the shipping industry. On the one hand, the introduction of environmental regulations such as the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) and the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) is driving an increase in energy efficiency. On the other hand, with bunker fuel often representing around 60-70% of many ships’ operating costs and at sustained high bunker prices, increasing energy efficiency can result in considerable costs savings. Measurement of fuel consumption is an important component in energy efficiency management, and yet there is little work to date quantifying the measurement techniques currently used in the industry and the applications of these techniques.
