Electrabel has been awarded the prize for the favorite brand in the 'energy supplier' category of Belgium's National Brand Competition.

In this survey, 68.9% of interviewees named Electrabel as the brand they liked the most. This score was the highest of all the 38 categories, the electricity supplier says.

The National Brand Competition is an initiative of the communication agency LDV United. The survey was carried out online from January 23 to February 3, 2006, among 32,409 internet users who together are fairly representative of the Belgian population.

The company says that the result comes as recognition of the efforts made over the past few years in terms of its quality of service, efficiency and customer orientation.
