About FESC

 

FESC is a consortium of 11 Florida Universities legislatively created in 2008. The Consortium was charged to ‘perform research and development on innovative energy systems that lead to alternative energy strategies, improved energy efficiencies, and expanded economic development for the state.’

Florida Energy Systems Consortium

 



The 2008 Florida Legislature defined goals and specific objectives
with respect to energy production and consumption to
meet its 2020 target criteria. The FESC-FLATE partnership
defines FLATE as FESC’s Core Facility for community college
technical workforce education development and deployment
throughout the state. Visit FESC

Industrial Energy Efficiency Specialization

The Industrial Energy Efficiency specialization track comes at a time when interest in reducing operating costs through energy efficiency maximization is growing significantly both in Florida and throughout the nation. The new specialization will be designed to provide the training necessary to teach manufacturing, industrial, and other appropriate technicians, such as HVAC technicians or electricians, to save energy costs on the plant floor.



The framework was submitted to the Florida Department of Education at the beginning of 2013 so colleges can implement it in the 2013-14 academic year.
