The 2013 Florida Energy Summit will be held this year on October 14-15 at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando.  As the nation’s third largest consumer of energy, it is imperative that Florida’s energy policy creates an environment that fosters the development of affordable, clean energy sources to meet our  long term needs.    This year’s Energy Summit will examine the changing energy sector and how Florida can prepare to take advantage of future economic opportunities.  The agenda features panel discussions on how changing demographics are affecting energy usage and evolving infrastructure for electricity, natural gas supplies and transportation fuel delivery facilities.  Other panel discussions will focus on the economic impact of increased energy production, how businesses can cut costs by increasing energy efficiency and the influence of energy on the housing market.
