Abstract: Fuel consumption on-board ships is a major concern for generating electricity for Heating, Ventilation and Air conditioning systems (HVAC), Operating machineries and equipment, lighting and other electrical utilities. The conventional fuel supply also slowly reducing and become completely vanish in the years to come. The alternate and most appropriate system for the cooling operation and efficient method of operating electrical utilities in ships is essential so as to reduce the electricity consumption as well solution to economic crisis and eradicating emission problems. Fuel consumption can be reduced by optimising the use and exploitation of machinery and equipment systems. To minimise fuel consumption, fuel cost and emission from machineries, significant viable energy efficiency measures should be considered. Major focus on this study is to provide effective ways for reducing on-board power demand which are Thermal Energy Storage for air conditioning applications, Automated Power Management Systems and conversion of existing conventional system with the replacement of energy efficient systems or components. In this study also addressed the preliminary indicators for identifying niche areas for reducing energy consumption and mitigating CO2 emission in on-boardships.
