Energy supply and production is of critical importance for Floridians. Florida, and the nation, in general, are concerned with the status of current energy reserves; based primarily on non-renewable resources. The diversification of the nation's energy portfolio to include renewable resources helps improve: 1) energy reliability and independence from foreign production 2) greenhouse gas emissions and/or global warming 3) national security and; 4) long term energy price stability. In addition to clean and renewable energy, the other area of interest in this study is energy efficiency.
