In March, 1997, the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) joined the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Clean Cities program to form the Florida Space Coast Clean Cities Coalition in East Central Florida. Space Coast Coalition now consists of 10 counties, as the State is divided into eight Clean Cities regions. Florida Solar Energy Center is located in Cocoa in the approximate center of the coalition area. On October 1, 1999, the expanded Florida Space Coast Clean Cities Coalition was designated and authorized as the 75th Clean Cities Coalition. The Florida Space Coast Clean Cities Coalition is a 501-3c non-profit corporation within the State of Florida and a member of Transportation Energy Partnership. Space Coast Coalition is administered by the University of Central Florida/Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) through the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) for the U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities Program. The Coalition has a Board of Directors consisting of Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, with the Clean Cities Coordinator as the Executive Director reporting to the Chair and U.S. DOE. This report describes mission, goals, market and event of the coalition in it day-to-day operation.
