Proper utilisation of energy key to economic growth: Nirmala Matapathi

Nirmala Matapathi, Deputy Director, Rangayana, on Wednesday said: “The economic development always goes along with the proper utilisation of LPG gas and electricity savings. If we can’t save fuel for the future, then many uncertainties may occur.”

She was speaking at the workshop on ‘Proper utilisation of LPG gas and electricity savings, use of solar energy in domestic sector’, organised by Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Limited at Ganabharathi auditorium, on Wednesday.

After inaugurating the programme, she said: “If we can monitor the consumption of fuel for our domestic purpose, then there would be no wastage. There is a need and thus we must attempt to know the forms of optimum utilisation of energy resources.”

“At this juncture, food wasting has become a trend among the young generation. In foreign nations there are strict laws for such things whereas in India, we are left free. But if we follow everything only for the sake of a law, then there would be no value for our willpower and honesty,” She added.

“Thus, organising these kinds of workshops especially for women will make huge impact as a woman can make home and society much better. They propagate principles in the society,” she said.

Later, Assistant Director of Petroleum Conservation Research Association Kavin Kumar said: “Women are the real pillars of the nation. Women organisations should be given education on these crucial aspects. After a few years, there might be an acute shortage of petroleum products. Then the optimum utilisation of renewable energy will be the priority. Only women could do such things. Thus the wastage and renewable resources have been the greater topic that we need to give priority.”

Dinesh Kumar D K, Project Engineer, KRDEL, Mysuru, Sumana Raghunandan, President, Mysuru Mahila Vedike, Sridevi Boopalam, President, Samskruti Women Sphere, Samana Srinatha, President, Inner Wheel Club of Mysuru West and others were present.
