Branding hydro: new perspectives and possibilities
Consumer power has never had as much impact on the industry as it does today. In liberalised markets, the consumer is free to choose the supplier. With increased awareness, more and more consumers are becoming selective about the source of energy that flows into their homes. The source of the electricity used at home is not the only focus of savvy consumers; the energy sources used to produce ordinary consumer goods are also receiving increased attention.
While solar and wind have received their share of coverage, awareness of hydropower has lagged behind, even though hydropower can be developed as a sustainable source of energy, both in terms of its environmental impacts and economic benefits.
In this webinar, energy branding will be outlined in simple terms. The webinar will also explore how the special features of hydropower might be used to gain a competitive advantage from a branding perspective, both for hydropower as an industry and for individual companies within the industry.
