Originating from the students of Government College of Engineering & Technology (GCET), Jammu, this youth-led movement, launched with the support of J&K Power Development Department, Government of J&K and Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), Ministry of Power, Government of India, invites individuals across the nation to contribute to the cause of energy conservation.

On the occasion, the Minister unveiled the web portal of the movement (www.4ewave.com), which will provide an interactive platform to the citizens nationwide for information and resource-sharing related to energy conservation. The user-friendly portal requires a simple registration process for on-boarding in the movement and the participants are provided with certificates of acknowledgment. Any Indian citizen can be a part of this campaign. Participants will also get personalized energy-saving tips tailored to their consumption patterns, regular updates on latest developments in energy conservation, and a dynamic platform for sharing articles on energy conservation for publication in the e-magazine named ‘e-kshitij’ to be published quarterly.
