Energy research at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) is highly diverse, reflecting the various interests of our highly capable faculty and students. A wide range of subject areas are covered by NPS energy research, including basic sciences, engineering, operations and analysis, and business. There is also an increasing amount of work that is cross-disciplinary and integrates the EAG with project, programs, and partners from multiple areas across NPS and the Navy, Marine Corps, and Department of Defense (DoD).
