State Energy Task Force

Archived: 06/01/2009

The Florida Renewable Energy Technologies and Energy Efficiency Act is established to increase the state's energy stability and protect public health by advancing the development of efficient and renewable energy technologies, including those related to hydrogen, ethanol, and biodiesel. The Act creates the Florida Energy Commission, which is responsible for developing recommendations for legislation to establish a state energy policy, focusing on energy-efficiency issues including the encouragement of in-state research, development, and deployment of alternative fuels for motor vehicles. As required by the Act, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection provided a report entitled Leadership by Example: Energy Efficiency and Conservation, which includes a description of state programs designed to achieve energy conservation and energy efficiency through the inclusion of alternative fuel vehicles in state fleets.
