The Department of Energy (DOE) conducted yesterday (14 February) Information, Education and Communication (IEC) Campaign on Energy Accounting at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, San Juan Branch. 

Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi said, “Energy is a keystone of sustained economic growth, especially in support of the administration’s Build Build Build program. We need to reach out to our students – our future industry professionals – and impart as much knowledge and understanding on the role of energy in our country’s development as early as possible.”

The DOE- Energy Policy and Planning Bureau (EPPB) led the IEC, which seeks to underscore the importance of energy economics to the students.

DOE-EPPB Senior Science Research Specialist Arnel C. Antonio discussed basic energy concepts; the government’s role in the energy sector, including the mandate and role of the DOE, as well as its policies, plans and programs; sources of energy; production of secondary energy (electricity and fuel); and the energy end-users.

DOE-EPPB Supervising Science Research Specialist Marietta M. Quejada, on the other hand, provided an overview on the energy accounting process that includes the collection, organization, and dissemination of energy data and information, to aid the country’s energy-related policy formulation, planning, and decision-making.

“An IEC Campaign on Energy Accounting affirms the government’s sincerity in providing transparent and reliable energy data and statistics, while educating the public on the basic principles of energy economics,” Sec. Cusi added.

180 students attended the event, which was capped by a quiz bee to challenge their knowledge and understanding of the new energy concepts and information they learned from the IEC.
