The report consists of the following four parts: First, the purpose for starting a network for energy efficiency in the maritime industry is discussed. The purpose outlines the need for a network for energy efficiency. Second, the proposed structure for a network for energy efficiency in the maritime industry is presented. The structure outlines organizational methods and processes needed in order for the network to function properly. The need for an aim and objectives for a network for energy efficiency in the maritime industry is also discussed. Third, the steps needed in order to create a network are presented. These include the formation of a core group of companies willing and able to commit funds to the creation of the network, as well as creating an executive board in charge of the network.
