Target Jobs 2014

Best Use of Innovation on Campus

E.ON was proud to receive the award for ‘Best Use of Innovation on Campus’ at the 2014 TargetJobs Awards. This award was given for a special installation we created as part of our graduate recruitment campaign. 

Meeting the growing demand for energy and tackling climate change are two of the biggest challenges we face today. We wanted to dramatise this to students and show them how they can be part of the solution.

The result was an on-campus immersive experience called ‘The Room of the Future’. This showcased a sitting room from the year 2020, with flickering lights caused by an erratic energy supply and a TV news bulletin showing the havoc caused by climate change. The news report then gradually changed to show an alternative reality; one where innovations in sustainable energy result in a better future for all.
The installation was a big success with students and helped to raise our profile among the graduate community. Applications to our graduate scheme rose by over 25% that year.
