Climate change increases awareness of the impact of shipping on the emission of pollutants. Operating ships in an energy efficient manner contributes to lowering emissions and promotes more sustainable shipping. This study proposes a methodology that will allow an energy audit to be carried out in a systematic manner throughout the vessel. The data collected will be unified under a common hub for processing in order to generate useful information on-board and will allow further analysis for improvement of fleet management on shore. This systematic process is introduced and outlined here, and includes ship survey, data collection, data processing and data analysis. The aim of this study is to understand the energy flow architecture breakdown, the method used to gather data from sensors and transformation of the collected data into useful knowledge. This method is being tested on-board the Newcastle University research vessel, RV Princess Royal.
