CHESHIRE ENERGY HUB (CEH)
The Cheshire Energy Hub is an energy sector support organisation, funded and strategically driven by industry. Its members work collaboratively to advance the skills agenda and energy initiatives in the region.
By putting into place the Graduate program, the CEH aims to offer young engineers and scientists multi-company placements. To find out more about their graduate scheme, click on the link.
CEH has also established the UK’s first Energy Innovation District in the North West.
ENERGY INNOVATION DISTRICT
Established by the industry-led Cheshire Energy Hub, the District spans the industrial heartland from Ellesmere Port toward Runcorn, where over 5% of the UK’s energy is consumed. The overarching aim is to provide secure, low-carbon and low-cost indigenous energy from the North West, unlocking over 33,000 jobs and £7 billion in capital investment.

MID CHESHIRE DEVELOPMENT BOARD
The Board is helping the economic development by finding ways to attract funding into the local area (covering Northwich, Winsford, Middlewich and Crewe). Being a partner in this Board is essential for Storengy, as it is important for the company to be aware of all the projects in which Storengy could contribute in the area of green energies and especially low carbon solutions such as gas storage, geothermal etc… Click here to see the Board’s objectives.
Our commitment to the local community is also through the Local Liaison Committee that we host and the Low-Carbon Community fund providing local Parishes with energy efficiency improvements that will demonstrate to the local community the benefits of new technologies and will be a catalyst for them to make energy improvements in their own homes.
CHESHIRE WEST AND CHESTER COUNCIL
Storengy UK is working in close cooperation with Cheshire West and Chester Council to support local economy efficiency improvements and develop larger scale energy solutions through the Cheshire Energy Hub and the Energy Innovation District. The Cheshire West and Chester Council provides the local inhabitants with a full range of local government services including Council Tax billing, libraries, social services etc…For more information click here.

Storengy UK created a Local Community Fund (LCF), in 2008 to support the local parishes.
Initially the fund helped with renovation works on local parish buildings but more recently the fund has been focused on energy efficiency projects. So far Storengy has; installed Solar PV, energy efficient windows and doors, low energy light fittings and LEDs, efficient boiler controls, loft insulation and LED lighting across the 5 parish's.
The parish representatives are involved in reviewing submissions for funding and will take the final decision on where the funding will be allocated. The more recent focus on energy efficiency has see Storengy arrange for an energy specialist to carry out a survey of community buildings and make recommendations on ways to improve energy efficiency.
Once funding is awarded and the improvements are in place, Storengy UK then monitors the energy savings and uses the community buildings for events to demonstrate the benefits gained from the measures we have funded.
Example of our funding is Byley Village Hall, Storengy supplied funding for Solar PV panels and they funded a Telsar battery to store the energy generated.
Byley Parish have worked closely with Storengy through our Local Liaison Committee since the start of the project. The company has made every effort to keep us informed of their plans well ahead of taking actions which has enabled the parishioners to make comments/suggestions and be kept up to date. The company has made a very good job of screening the plant from view. They have been excellent ‘neighbours’ to our farmers and minimised disruption when installing pipelines and afterwards returning the land back to the farmers. Finally Storengy have contributed through their local community fund to some projects within the 5 effected parishes, for which we’re very grateful.
John Beecroft, Parish Chairman

Throughout the year we have held a number of events and activities to raise money for the Charity. back in March we walked 10,000 steps per day.
In April we held a Bike-a-Thon collectively we cycled 102 miles, our spring raffle helped push our fund raising over £400.
The Step Challenge through June saw the team walk a massive 6,298,228 steps which is the equivalent of walking from San Francisco to Miami!! We also had a sweet shop and our Storengy bake off in October. We have exceeded our £600 target and have many more events lined up before the end of the year.
