Department of Energy (DOE), in partnership with the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) and Philippine Information Agency (PIA) launched the “E-Power Mo!” yesterday (July 12) at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City.
Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi said that there is a “need to send across the message of the energy sector to the entire energy chain, from the industry players down to the general public.”
The conference for energy consumers and stakeholders, “E-Power Mo!” aims to provide essential information on the fast-evolving developments in the energy sector, proper energy utilization and energy resiliency.
E-Power Mo will also launch President Rodrigo Duterte’s energy roadmap and policies designed to empower the consumers specifically to:
1. Develop and utilize the energy resources available to Filipinos for wealth creation and global competition (E-POWER MO!);
2. Undertake safety and savings measures through energy efficiency (E-SAFETY MO!);
3. Secure the delivery of quality, reliable and affordable energy services (E-SECURE MO!); and,
4. Empower consumers through a wide range of options in utilizing conventional, renewable and alternative energy sources. (E-DISKARTE MO!).
The DOE will aggressively implement this strategic energy information, education and communication campaign so that ordinary Filipinos would be encouraged to use energy responsibly and would be partners in advancing the country’s economic growth. (DOE/RJB/SDL/PIA-NCR)
