We seek to explore the frontiers of energy branding and bring together hands-on experience, best practices and cases along with academic insight with the aim of highlighting the untapped potential within the energy space by putting to use world-class branding practices. 

The 5th annual CHARGE Awards

The CHARGE Awards honour brands that are thinking proactively and investing in branding. These brands are unique in the eyes of their customers and know how to get their message across and defend their market share through differentiation and a strong brand image. 

The awards follow a comprehensive procedure starting with suggestions from the CHARGE community and ending with the CHARGE Awards Ceremonial Gala dinner on the 28th of September in Reykjavik, Iceland.

What attendees say

Three overarching themes

Branding, Green and Innovation will be at the foreground at CHARGE 2020. Each track within the themes consists of short presentations followed by panel discussions.
The branding tracks will offer hands-on experience, in-depth knowledge and guided workshops to provide participants with valuable items for their professional toolboxes and inspiration to achieve higher brand value.
The green tracks will be a platform of discussion on all things green. New energy sources, electric vehicles, sustainable solutions and behavioural change. What is the difference between sustainable and green and does it make a difference in the customer’s mind? We will find out.
We have the smart home talking to us, cars driving for us and blockchain doing its part. But beyond the buzzwords are new emerging technologies and new innovative uses of current technologies. Find out how innovation will shape the energy brand.
