May 9, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Navy Energy ManageThe US Department of the Navy and Purdue University signed a statement of cooperation, agreeing to work together to convert up to half of the Navy and Marine Corps’ energy consumption to alternative sources, including biofuels, by 2020.

Through the agreement, Purdue and the Navy and Marine Corps will examine efforts designed to improve energy conservation, renewable-energy generation and the implementation of energy-efficient technologies in all areas of application.

Purdue is home to the Energy Center in Discovery Park. The center leads interdisciplinary research efforts in advancing alternative energy sources and approaches.

In 2013, the Office of Naval Research announced it was pumping $30 million into Energy Excelerator, a Hawaii-based program that funds development of new ideas in energy innovation.
