Environmental Leader covers the US Navy’s i-ENCON program, which helped US Navy ships save more than $79 million in fuel costs during Q1-Q2 2009. That’s the largest 2-quarter cost savings since the fleet-wide conservation program was implemented in FY 1999. The article explains i-ENCON in more depth, reviews the trend in the U.S. Navy’s overall energy consumption level, and points to an interesting new initiative in Raser Technologies Inc.’s new 100 miles-per-gallon, extended-range electric Hummer H3 demonstrator.
