Key Highlights
Powerade Energy was released in the UK in April 2011 by Coca-Cola Enterprises as a solution to what the company described as consumers' "dual energy" needs - a one-stop product to meet both the need for instant energy (as typified by drinks such as Red Bull, Monster) and sustained performance enhancement typical of sports drinks (e.g. Lucozade).

Powerade Energy's basic message did not resonate with consumers. The idea of a caffeine-based energy drink as fuel for an "everyday race" proved problematic, given the alternatives and consumer perceptions about potential negatives of normalizing energy drink consumption.
