Vision Statement


Our Vision


Florida’s sustainable energy economy will become a national leader in creating technological, environmental and economic benchmarks by which all states can gauge their performance. The Institute for Energy Systems, Economics and Sustainability at The Florida State University will be an essential component of Florida’s leadership in sustainable energy.




The Institute is a public resource. Here we carry out scholarly basic research and analysis in engineering, science, infrastructure, governance and the related social dimensions all designed to further a sustainable energy economy. The Institute unites researchers from the disciplines of engineering, natural sciences, law, urban and regional planning geography, and economics to address sustainability and alternative power issues in the context of global climate change.




Our goal is scholarship that leads to informed governance, economics and decision making for a successful Florida sustainable energy strategy.
