iENCON History and Timeline

The Navy’s Energy Conservation Program (ENCON) was implemented fleet wide
In FY2000

The ultimate objective is to make ships more fuel efficient. Since it’s inception, ENCON has helped the U.S. Navy’s fleet in accomplishing increased steaming hours at no extra cost by managing fuel consumption and transit speeds and eliminating unproductive energy expenditures.
