Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus will speak at the University of Wyoming next week.  His talk “Energy Innovation, National Security, and the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps” will be presented inside the University of Wyoming Energy Innovation Center’s Encana Auditorium at noon on Monday, Sept. 28.

This event is costs nothing and is open to the public.  Lunch will be provided for those in attendance.  His talk is part of the U.W. School of Energy Resources Speaker Series.

Since being sworn in on May 19, 2009, Secretary Mabus has instructed the Navy and Marine Corps to change the way they acquire, produce, and use energy.  By 2020, at least half of their power must come from alternative energy sources.  In 2011 and 2015, Secretary Mabus spoke at the Energy Efficiency Forum and explained how energy efficiency both keeps troops safe and creates a new energy economy.

Secretary Mabus has a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Mississippi, a master’s degree in political science from Johns Hopkins, and a law degree from Harvard.  He was elected Governor of Mississippi in 1988, served as the Chairman and CEO of Foamex, and was Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during the Clinton Administration.  As Secretary of the Navy, he oversees roughly 900,000 service personnel and an annual budget in excess of $170 billion.
