On the same occasion, the Director General of EBTKE, Rida Mulyana also shared knowledge with female students on the importance of energy-saving behavior.

It means what, we who have enjoyed this, please leave it, please save for our brothers there, most of whom are in Papua ", he said.


"Our important goal today is to make the brothers here become agents of change or energy-saving movement agents, start from ourselves, in their own environment, do it right now," Rida concluded. Rida Mulyana said that she is always present at every energy conservation activity, because it involves intergeneration, everyone, whoever it is must be concerned about conservation and energy saving because it involves a large audience and the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources cannot move alone to achieve energy saving targets , need the support of all parties.
