Go to NEPTUNE for New Ideas in Energy!

To break new ground in alternative energy; increase educational opportunities for the military community; and bolster science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) outreach, the Department of the Navy and ONR have launched the Naval Enterprise Partnership Teaming with Universities for National Excellence initiative, or NEPTUNE. NEPTUNE is a two-year pilot program providing funding for energy-related research and workforce training to four universities, the U.S. Naval Academy and the Naval Postgraduate School.
