Branding for the Renewable Energy Transition

The past few years have accelerated a dramatic interchange in global energy production, infrastructure & utilisation. Most significantly & noticeably the ongoing push for sustainability, as the planet, governments, investors & consumers fixate on environmentally-conscious alternatives to fossil fuels – uniting in our push for net zero emissions.

Climate tech, clean tech, renewable energy, zero net, climate emergency, energy transition, green energy, clean energy – these terms have become customary in our daily lives in recent years.

The critical-nature & vast exposure of the challenge upon us has led to growing government accountability, & with that, a requirement & huge opportunity for ‘green investments’.

Renewable energy trusts have become particularly attractive to investors – since 2013, there have been 14 funds established with more than £13bn of assets between them. Many green investment opportunities can provide stable returns, along with the added benefit of the environmental, ethical, ‘feel good’ factor associated with doing the right thing for the planet.

Clean energy investment continues to grow, but it needs to increase significantly if the world has a chance of achieving its mission. It is predicted that investment in renewables must more than triple to $1.3 trillion annually by 2030 if the world is to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

Fable&Co. take a look back at some of the pioneering brands we’ve worked with, playing our part in helping accelerate & transition towards a clean energy future.


Fable&Co. were first approached by Pelion Green Future with the challenge of further developing this ambitious brand, crafting a new visual identity & website that truly captured their prodigious mission – being the catalyst for change & innovation, helping to accelerate the transition towards a cleaner future.

Fable&Co. were fortunate to have caught the attention of Tion Renewables, formally known as Pacifico Renewables.

Fable&Co.'s Guiding Thought

Renewable energy brands are in the midst of great opportunity, however, they will face stiff competition & will need to give special consideration to:



01. Attracting & retaining top-level talent

Ambitious brands know too well that without the right team in place the business is unlikely to succeed. Branding plays a vital role in influencing top-tier talent to join one brand over another, building a deeper connection with potential candidates even before an application is made.

Shared values, mission & vision can go a long way in ensuring new hires are emotionally invested & fully aligned with the brand, whilst motivating its people towards the same goal, offering greater job satisfaction, longevity & commitment. This can alleviate the need to compete purely on salaries & benefits alone.



2. Influencing purchasing decisions

With the energy transition a global challenge, the importance of collaboration through strategic partnerships & investment is pivotal to success.

The ability to attract long-term, sustainable business opportunities stems from demonstrating credibility, commonality & clarity. Communicating the brand proposition clearly & concisely, showcasing professionalism, expertise & experience, along with alignment on values, mission & vision will help inspire confidence, garner attention & influence key decision-makers.



3. Standing apart through authenticity

The emergence of renewable energy start-ups & established businesses adopting ‘green’ buzzwords means transparency & authenticity should be championed.

By embracing a candidness & openness, brands can really begin to engage on a more emotional & human level with its varied brand audiences, shining a light on its people, its culture, its purpose & collective aspirations.

The role of branding is becoming increasingly important as we unite in our push for net zero emissions.

Green buzzwords may be ‘on-trend’ right now, but renewable energy brands must be looking to define themselves for the long-term. Establishing a meaningful, solid foundation to build upon – to hire the best talent, to form the best partnerships, to secure the best investment, to achieve their critical mission.

Fable&Co. is here to empower these pioneering brands in their quest & play our part in the acceleration towards a clean energy future.
