January 25, 2023

Ihsan Afzal, Special Coordinator to Prime Minister: The government has a plan to save 100 billion rupees from energy conservation plan.  For this, government has devised a comprehensive strategy to launch a massive awareness campaign through media and public opinion makers. It is pertinent to mention here that we spend about 27 billion dollars on import of petroleum products per annum, which is biggest portion of our economy. And if we become able to bring down this import bill to even half of its original bill by taking austerity measures, it would be big step to  strengthen our economy.


 Dr. Gulfraz Ahmed ( Energy Expert) : It is a welcoming step by the government that it has decided to launch to awareness campaign to save energy in the country.  Energy conservation is a very effective way of reducing consumption of energy, and at least 20 percent of  energy being used can be  saved if there is an effective national campaign to conserve the energy.But when it comes to the idea of  energy conservation, then , it should be started from top to bottom, so that people can be persuaded to save energy.
