About Company

FSEC Energy Research Center, also known as the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC), is the state’s premier energy research center. Created by the Florida Legislature in 1975 to test and certify solar systems, FSEC is administered by the University of Central Florida. As a result of FSEC’s extensive research capabilities increasing throughout the years, Florida Solar Energy Center slowly outgrew its solar name. The Center is rebranding its research as the FSEC Energy Research Center—at the University of Central Florida—to more accurately reflect its research, capabilities, and university affiliation.

Mission

Although energy research programs and projects have changed throughout the years, FSEC’s mission remains the same:

Research Areas

FSEC has more than 40 years of experience in renewable energy systems and building science. The Center’s 70-member staff includes professionals with expertise in engineering, energy research, building science, energy and policy analysis, as well as education and training.  Research at the FSEC Energy Research Center is based on field monitoring, computer simulations, and controlled experiments in highly-instrumented laboratories. As a result of FSEC’s extensive research capabilities, its programs are nationally and internationally recognized, and include:

  • High performance buildings
  • Solar technologies
  • Hydrogen and fuel cells
  • Electric vehicles
  • Energy systems integration
  • K-12 Education and Continuing Education

In addition, the Laws of Florida (§377.705, FS) require that all solar systems manufactured or sold in the state of Florida comply with Solar Equipment Standards promulgated by the Florida Solar Energy Center® (FSEC®). These standards cover both solar thermal equipment and solar electric equipment. The FSEC Energy Research Center—originally established as the Florida Solar Energy Center® (FSEC®)—works closely with industry, the research and development community, and other interested stakeholders to ensure that its Standards encourage the effective use of renewable energy resources and protect the consumers of the state of Florida.
