RMKS/1. THIS NAVADMIN ANNOUNCES THE FY09 ENERGY CONSERVATION AWARDS  
IAW REF A.  ALTHOUGH THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE FOR OVER A  
DECADE, IT TAKES ON INCREASED SIGNIFICANCE THIS YEAR AS THE NAVY  
PURSUES NEW OVERALL GOALS FOR ENERGY CONSERVATION AND EFFICIENCY.
 ENERGY CONSERVATION (ENCON) IS A CRITICAL COMPONENT OF ENERGY  
SECURITY AND ENERGY SECURITY IS THE SECRETARY OF THE NAVY'S  SIGNATORY 
ISSUE.
2.  REF B ANNOUNCED THE SECNAV'S DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY ENERGY  TARGETS.  
MEETING THE SECNAV GOAL OF 50% ALTERNATE FUELS BY 2020  REQUIRES US AS 
A NAVY TO CONSUME FUEL AT A SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER RATE  THAN IN THE PAST.  
ENERGY EFFICIENCY IS THE LEAST COSTLY WAY TO MAKE  THE GREATEST 
DIFFERENCE IN FUEL REDUCTION AND BEHAVIORIAL CHANGES  ARE ESSENTIAL TO 
THE NAVY'S ABILITY TO REACH THESE GOALS.  THE  OBJECTIVE OF THE ENERGY 
CONSERVATION AWARDS PROGRAM IS TO PROMOTE  EXCELLENCE IN ENERGY 
CONSERVATION AND ENERGY MANAGEMENT WITHIN THE  DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY.  
RECOGNITION WILL BE GIVEN FOR OUTSTANDING  LEADERSHIP IN ENERGY 
MANAGEMENT, INNOVATIONS IN THE IMPROVEMENT OF  ENERGY EFFICIENCY, 
ENERGY CONSERVING APPROACHES TO TRAINING, DAILY  OPERATIONS, 
HOUSEKEEPING, AND MAINTENANCE.  THIS PROGRAM REINFORCES  NAVYS 
LEADERSHIP AS AN OUTSTANDING STEWARD OF THE ENVIRONMENT.
3.  ALL SHIPS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM AS 
AN EFFECTIVE MEANS OF PROMOTING INNOVATIVE AND  EFFECTIVE ENERGY 
MANAGEMENT WITHIN THE NAVY.  THE INTENT OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO RECOGNIZE 
ACHIEVEMENTS AT THE UNIT LEVEL.  THE TWO  CATEGORIES OF NAVAL UNITS 
ELIGIBLE FOR TACTICAL ENERGY AWARDS ARE:
    A.  LARGE SHIPS (CREW OF 400 OR MORE)
    B.  SMALL SHIPS (CREW OF LESS THAN 400) 4.  THE FOLLOWING FOUR 
FUNCTIONAL AREAS WILL BE WEIGHTED AS THE AWARD  CRITERIA FOR SHIPS.
    A.  TOTAL ENERGY SAVED (35 POINTS): TOTAL ENERGY SAVED IN FY09  CAN 
BE CALCULATED IN BARRELS AND DOLLARS COMPARED TO PRIOR YEAR  ENCON 
BASELINES FOR UNDERWAY, NOT UNDERWAY, AND GAINS/LOSSES BY  INVENTORY.  
THE ENCON BASELINES ARE BASED ON A PREVIOUS THREE-YEAR  NEURS 
HISTORICAL AVERAGE.  THERE IS A YEAR LAG BETWEEN BASELINES AND  CURRENT 
FISCAL YEAR.  FOR EXAMPLE, THE FY09 BASELINE YEARS ARE FY07,  06, AND 
05.  SHIPS MAY VIEW THEIR CLASS AVERAGE BASELINE IN FY09  QUARTERLY 
FUEL REPORTS AND ENCON WEBSITE AT HTTP://WWW.I-ENCON.COM.
 SHIPS SHOULD USE THESE FUEL PERFORMANCE REPORTS TO DETERMINE TOTAL  
ENERGY SAVINGS.  OPERATIONAL SAVINGS ACHIEVED BY OPERATING YOUR SHIP  
MORE EFFICIENTLY BOTH UNDERWAY AND NOT UNDERWAY ARE PRIMARY AWARD  
CRITERIA.  DOCKSIDE ENERGY SAVINGS ACHIEVED BY REDUCING HOTEL LOAD  
DEMANDS WHILE OPTIMIZING COLD-IRON SUPPORT VERSUS NOT-UNDERWAY PLANT  
OPERATION WILL ALSO BE CONSIDERED.
