The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (DACS) will host the 2012 Florida Energy Summit at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, August 15-17, 2012.  As the successor to the previous Farm to Fuel initiative, the Florida Energy Summit encompasses not only agricultural-based fuels, but also all renewable energy and energy conservation activities in the state.  The summit will explore how Florida can secure a stable, reliable and diverse supply of energy.  Leaders from the agricultural, utility, solar, government, academic, technology, and financial communities will gather to discuss the future of the energy industry in Florida.  Discussion topics will include state energy policy and the impact of the recently enacted Florida energy bill (HB7117), as well as innovative energy-related research efforts throughout the state.  Homeowners, businesses, local governments and energy producers will have an opportunity to learn and share ideas to help advance the development of the state's energy industry and conservation practices.
