Energy Consultancy of the Year (Public Relations), 2016: Hill+Knowlton Strategies

H+K’s Energy team comprises 25 experts dedicated to the industry, with 80 years’ combined experience. The firm represent companies across the whole supply chain, from world leaders like Shell, Statoil, GE and Dong Energy, to smaller specialists like South Hook Gas, Intelligent Energy and Enphase Energy.

Energy companies work with H+K across a broad variety of issues and projects. Whether supporting the development of climate change messaging for COP21, building a digital presence for Statoil or inviting target media to GE Oil & Gas’s annual meeting, H+K has the knowledge and creativity to deliver with outstanding results and to tackle complex issues.

IOGP hired H+K to work on global communications for two Joint Industry Programmes conducting scientific research into two challenging issues for the industry: oil spill response technology in Arctic conditions and the impact of exploration and production sound on marine life. H+K developed a brand and integrated communications strategy to enable the JIPs to inform global audiences about a series of research projects, which have helped to contribute scientific evidence to emotive debates.

Having worked with Dong to build the company’s profile, the Danish firm is now widely regarded as the world’s leading developer of offshore wind energy and technology. H+K’s support has helped to secure three of the recent six government-awarded contracts for renewable projects, as well as what should be one of the largest IPOs in Europe this year.

The firm’s insightful research is also considered with great esteem.
