The USS Carney (DDG 64) won the FY 2015 SECNAV Energy Award in the Medium Hull category for its energy efficiency efforts while deployed to the Fifth Fleet Area of Operation, which resulted in an underburn of 10 percent.

Shipboard Energy Conservation Assist Training (SECAT) software was used to generate fuel consumption curves and optimum transit curves, use of the ship’s generators was maximized, and main engines were secured whenever possible.

Each crewmember also received energy efficiency training. These efforts resulted in fuel savings of 12,635 barrels underway and 7,302 barrels during in port steaming.
