Overview: The Military Sealift Command (MSC) is seeking innovative concepts from industry (maritime and non-maritime) and academia that support shipboard energy conservation needs. Of primary interest are development efforts with the potential for rapid transition to Fleet operations. The Energy Conservation (ENCON) program partners MSC's expertise in ship management and operation with the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division’s Operation Logistics Integration (OPLOG) team’s research and development capabilities, in order to reduce energy and fuel consumption onboard MSC ships. A two-year Broad Agency Announcement has recently been released. For technical questions, contact: NSWCCD_OPLOG@navy.mil.
