Navy Secretary Ray Mabus hit back Wednesday at critics of his seven-year push to make the Navy more energy efficient and introduce alternative fuels, saying these initiatives have made SEALs harder to track on the battlefield and saved the lives of Marines.

Mabus, who is coming to the end of his tenure in the Navy’s top civilian post, said at a National Press Club event in Washington, D.C., that the Navy has reached its goal of deriving at least half of its energy used ashore from non-fossil fuel sources ahead of his 2020 deadline, and that sea and air components are on track to achieve the same objective within the next four years.
