UCF's Office of Research and Commercialization, in cooperation with
the Florida Solar Energy Center, hosted a special meeting to
begin a new initiative to position UCF as one of America's
leading universities in energy research. By bringing together the
university's resources and talents, we can move Florida and the
nation toward the goal of sustainable energy independence.
With a world-renowned energy research institute and rapidly
expanding university research capabilities, UCF is poised to
become a national leader in the research needed to meet the challenges
of today's energy and environmental problems. By working together,
the academic units and research centers and institutes can bring
the expertise that will propel the university into national prominence
in this important and timely research arena.
