24th May has been designated Energy Day for Brunei Darussalam. Appropriately, the theme for this year's Energy Day is "VALUE OUR PRECIOUS ENERGY" or in Malay; "HARGAI TENAGA KITANI".

This year will see the launching by Yang Berhormat The Minister of Energy at the Prime Minister's office tomorrow, 24th May. The day will also see all petrol filling stations throughout the Country selling petroleum products at "commercial prices" without any subsidy. In a press interview on Thursday 20th May, representatives from the Energy Division and the Petroleum Unit explained that the objective of the initiative was to raise public awareness (on how much the Government is spending on subsidising these products for the public).

Other initiatives throughout the Energy Week will include Energy Forum, Energy Camps and a short sketch (drama) competition among Secondary schools.

Support the Energy Week by "Switching Off and Set" (SOS) on 24th May from 09.00am to 09.00pm and make your pledge here.
