The challenge

Londoners deserve a better deal on their energy. Every year, Londoners spend an estimated £3.5 billion on gas and electricity household bills. Despite this, the capital has some of the lowest rates of switching between providers in the country.

The Mayor of London’s Office is seeking to change that with the founding of London Power, the new affordable energy company exclusively for Londoners.

On behalf of the Mayor’s Office, and the Greater London Authority, we were challenged to launch London Power and drive a measurable shift in the number of Londoners likely to switch supplier.

Our Approach

The utilities category is crowded and low-interest. Londoners, more than most, are apathetic about switching energy supplier.

We identified that being distinctive, engaging and memorable, will give London Power the best chance of success in overcoming customer apathy and driving Londoners to switch.

The campaign

London Power is here to shake up the status quo in the energy industry.

Competitive prices, 100% renewable electricity, no exit fees and any profits made reinvested into community projects makes London Power different to any other supplier.

Our campaign ‘A Different Kind of Energy’, aims to highlight this difference and emphasise that London deserves an energy company as different as it’s people.

The hero of the campaign is a vibrant macaw – the fluent device designed to personify difference and London Power’s intent to stand out from the crowd. Our hero macaw also embodies London Power’s brand colours for added memorability.
