Is there space for a new player in the energy market to compete with any of the 'big six'.


To assess the likely appeal of the draft propositions from Newco in domestic energy supply.

To optimise the consumer propositions, learning which benefits, features and brand equities are most likely to drive success.

To identify the aspects of any proposition most appealing to different behavioral groups to help inform the development of optimal marketing approaches for recruitment, ‘closure’ and retention.
