Executive summary of an energy study of the marine transportation industry. Volume I. Draft final report

Description: The conclusions and recommendations resulting from an examination of energy use in the marine transportation industry are presented. The methodology used is discussed. Specific information is discussed concerning energy consumption and productivity in these sectors: foreign trade; Great Lakes; inland waterways; coastal; offshore; pleasure craft; and fishing and miscellaneous. Based on the energy savings potentials calculated, the programs relating to slow speed diesels, diesel bottoming cycles, and hull maintenance and smoothing are recommended for funding in FY1978.
