The launch event, held in the presence of Lieutenant Governor of Jammu & Kashmir, Manoj Sinha, took place in Delhi on December 7, 2023.

The primary objective of the 4E Wave is to foster sustainable practices and cultivate a sense of responsibility among individuals and communities to save energy. The movement encapsulates four fundamental elements:

  3. Education: Focusing on educating the public about energy-saving methods and their importance.

  4. Empowerment: Empowering individuals and communities to take active roles in conserving energy.

The initiative, originating from the students of Government College of Engineering & Technology (GCET), Jammu, has garnered support from the J&K Power Development Department, Government of J&K, and the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), Ministry of Power, Government of India. The movement invites participation from individuals across the nation to contribute to the noble cause of energy conservation.

During the launch ceremony, the Minister unveiled the official web portal of the movement, accessible at www.4ewave.com. This platform provides an interactive space for citizens nationwide to share information and resources related to energy conservation. The user-friendly portal involves a straightforward registration process for onboarding participants, who receive certificates of acknowledgment.

Any Indian citizen is welcome to join the campaign, offering personalized energy-saving tips, regular updates on the latest developments in energy conservation, and a dynamic platform for sharing articles in the quarterly e-magazine named 'e-kshitij.'
