The CHARGE Awards
The purpose of the CHARGE awards is to increase awareness and highlight the importance of excellent branding in the rapidly changing energy sector. We do this by showcasing and honouring companies, and the people behind them, that have distinguished themselves with outstanding branding and communications work.
The CHARGE Awards are the first and only of its kind to recognize and award great branding within the energy space. Behind the awards is an international panel of experts within energy, marketing and communications that nominate the best brands each year. The panel further reviews the case studies that nominees submit.
The winners are announced at the CHARGE Awards Ceremony on 29th of September. Following inspiring discussions during the first day of CHARGE, energy professionals from around the world gather for a unique gala dinner and celebrate the world’s best energy brands.
What makes a great energy brand?
A great energy brand stands out from the competition and is unique in the eyes of the consumers. It understands its customers and inspires loyalty. A great energy brand knows how to communicate its meaning and can effectively differentiate itself from the competition
Access to case studies
All nominated brands hand in a case study for review. The case study is a comprehensive document that outlines their uniqueness, segmentation, customer centricity and other critical parts of a strong brand.
