## Abstract

In [8], the first author proposed a strengthening of Onsager's conjecture on the failure of energy conservation for incompressible Euler flows with Hölder regularity not exceeding $1/3$. This stronger form of the conjecture implies that anomalous dissipation will fail for a generic Euler flow with regularity below the Onsager critical space $L_{t}B_{3,∞}$ due to low regularity of the energy profile.

The present paper is the second in a series of two papers whose results may be viewed as first steps towards establishing the conjectured failure of energy regularity for generic solutions with Hölder exponent less than $1/5$. The main result of this paper shows that any non-negative function with compact support and Hölder regularity $1/2$ can be prescribed as the energy profile of an Euler flow in the class $C_{t,x}$. The exponent $1/2$ is sharp in view of a regularity result of Isett [8]. The proof employs an improved greedy algorithm scheme that builds upon that in Buckmaster–De Lellis–Székelyhidi [1].
