Fishing Vessel Energy Efficiency

9Fishing Vessel Energy Efficiency Project – Phase 2

AFDF was awarded a grant from NOAA to further efforts to help fishermen reduce fuel costs on vessels. In Phase 2, AFDF will collaborate with Alaska Longline Fishermen’s Association (ALFA) to conduct additional vessel energy audits, improve a beta-version of an Energy Analysis Tool, finalize a fishermen-friendly online version of this Tool, and increase capacity in Alaska to conduct future energy audits and energy efficiency analysis.

On January 29, 2016, a presentation was made regarding the results of Phase 1 at the Young Fishermen’s Summit in Juneau. Vessel owners were also asked to volunteer to test the beta-version of the Energy Analysis Tool and provide feedback on its user-friendliness. This project is financially supported by NOAA Award # NA15NMF4270275.
