We have a great variety of brands as finalists this year. Energy companies are taking their branding more and more seriously and are more consumer-centric. The European market has led Branding for energy companies in the past years but North-America has a strong presence this year.

– Dr. Fridrik Larsen, Chairman of CHARGE Energy Branding.

The initial shortlist of over 80 companies was created by a global panel of experts that work in or around the energy space as well as professionals in branding and advertising and from academia. The finalists in the three retail categories (Established, Challenger and Green) are evaluated both by customer research as well as how the panel scores their case study submissions. The categories of Product & Innovation and Transmission are evaluated by their submissions to the panel.
