Ag Commish Adam Putnam to host Energy Summit



Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam announced on Thursday plans for the 2011 Florida Energy Summit, Oct. 26-28 in Orlando.

“The Florida Energy Summit will advance the expansion of the production of renewable energy in Florida by bringing together leaders in energy development, agriculture production, government, academic research, technology and finance,” Putnam said. “By taking a more comprehensive look at prospective energy resources, we will gain a better understanding of Florida’s energy potential to not only capture, but also capitalize on the rich resources available.”
Hosted by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services at Rosen Shingle Creek, the summit will focus on energy conservation and the future of renewable energy in Florida. Visit for more information and to register.
