Florida’s ten Regional Planning Councils in association with the U.S. Economic Development Administration, U.S. Department of Energy, and the Florida Office of Energy are identifying strategies to diversify Florida’s energy future and reduce reliance on foreign energy sources. Increased domestic energy usage means domestic jobs.
Florida’s ten Regional Planning Councils have released the Florida Energy Resiliency Report for the State of Florida. In preparing the Energy Resiliency Report, the team surveyed public attitudes to energy costs and tolerance for alternative choices; considered the circumstances of energy issues that are specific to Florida; and performed sophisticated economic analysis by modeling scenarios of different energy policy scenarios or potential future supply disruption events. The report also identifies and assesses strategies that Florida might use to guide its energy future and create and retain jobs. Florida utilities, universities, government agencies, local officials, and businesses were engaged during the report’s development. Click the links below to download the documents.
