Enterprise challenge with npower!

How do we put the energy back into energy companies?

Energy is the lifeblood of modern society and the foundation of our economic and personal wellbeing. However, the relationship between energy providers and customers is changing: from being a supplier of ‘invisible’ power or gas, we now offer energy services, products and energy efficiency measures. It is a dynamic industry making daily decisions that directly affect the economy; it’s complex and diverse, making it a fascinating place to work.

However, Energy companies are now seen as less trustworthy than bankers and politicians and stand accused of profiteering, even though the facts don’t match the media hype. We know that customer service levels need to improve and increasing prices need to be explained. Levels of trust have decreased across the industry and particularly for npower – with our customers, the general public, media and Government.

What can npower do to positively engage everyone whilst still managing to remain profitable in a competitive market?

We want you, in 500 words, to tell us ‘How do we put the Energy back into Energy Companies?’


The winning team will receive

  • £500 cash per team member
  • A paid internship with npower (£16k pro rata)
  • The chance to meet important npower employers and managers

The deadline to enter this challenge is the 10th February 2014.
