Deputy Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources [ESDM] Susilo Siswoutomo on Saturday [11/10] attended the Energy Conscious Night on the occasion of launching of the book entitled Subsidized Oil Fasting written by Susilo Siswoutomo at the Ministrial Office.
This Energy Conscious Night was the highlight of a chain of events of the Energy Conscious Festival run in 4 cities through 2014 i.e. Yogyakarta [Universitas Pembangunan Nasional, May 30]; Makassar [Universitas Hassanuddin, June 9] and Manado [Sam Ratulangi University, August 20].
Head of Public Communication of the Ministry of ESDM Saleh Abdurrahman disclosed that some Indonesian people still believed that Indonesia is a country rich in natural resources which was wrong because in fact Indonesia’s crude oil resources was running out due to low domestic production.
“The Energy Conscious Festival was an approach expected to communicate national energy problem to the public, and how to manage energy better; among others through film [short film] making contest.” Saleh disclosed.
Saleh expected that through this event, the public, particularly the young generation understood the condition of national energy and realize that energy resources would run out unless wisely consumed. The public must also begin to usw substitute energy like gas and vegetable fuel.
“The participants and winner of Energy conscious Festival were expected to be the Ambassadors of Energy Conscious who would campaign the energy conscious concept especially the young generation,” Saleh said. (SS)
