The Energy Academic Group at NPS is responding to the SECNAV request for a World-Class Defense Energy Education Program
The increasing importance of Energy has been strongly emphasized by leadership at all levels in the executive and legislative branches of government, and specifically by the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV), the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), and Fleet and Shore commanders. Issues and problems related to Energy occur at the intersection of multiple disciplines, and their solutions therefore require interdisciplinary knowledge and actions. In response, the Naval Postgraduate School has established the Energy Academic Group (EAG). The EAG will develop and maintain NPS as a Navy Center of Excellence for Energy Graduate Education and Research. The three primary pillars of the EAG are the educational program, research, and outreach.
