Military to partner with Purdue for greener energy

– Purdue University is teaming up with the U.S. Navy on a project to help the military tap into alternative power sources.

Purdue President Mitch Daniels and U.S. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus signed an agreement Thursday to work together to use greener fuels in the Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.

They hope to convert up to half of the Navy and Marine Corps’ energy to alternative sources such as biofuels by 2020 using energy conservation, renewable-energy generation and new technologies.

Mabus also promised to cut petroleum use in Navy commercial vehicles in half by next year.

Purdue is also establishing the Purdue Military Research Initiative. That program will pay for graduate education for up to 10 active-duty members of the military, including studies in alternative fuels and energy technologies.
