This thesis discusses the background and extent of the current national energy crisis, and reviews the alternative energy sources available to the United States Navy other than conventional fossil fuels. An in-depth analysis is made of the advantages, disadvantages and techniques of one of these alternatives, solar energy conversion. The National Solar Energy Program is reviewed, as is the role of the Department of Defense and the United States Navy in this program. Methods of "retrofitting" existing Navy facilities with solar energy systems are discussed, as are new construction techniques. The thesis further contains techniques for life -cycle costing of alternative solar energy systems, which includes computer model programs such as BASIC Language, F- Chart calculations, and SOLCOST calculations. The thesis concludes with suggestions for establishing a viable solar energy program on an activity or individual basis. A comprehensive reference list and bibliography is provided to identify where technical and engineering details can be found.
