Working with the Community
Storengy UK is proud to work with local community groups, to assist with funding or provide insight into our business.
We are keen to work with the local community supporting young people, green initiatives, Charity organisations to name a few.
We decided to allocate funding for some local initiatives that we hope went a small way in making a big difference.
The Community fund is used to support an array of interesting projects with local charities. In 2022 we funded the Christmas meal for the community pantry, run by Chance Changing Lives.
In 2023 the Local Community Fund will be used to support more projects including young children through educational initiatives, health and well being charities and doing our bit to support charities dealing with people affected by the cost of living crisis. And we are please to have already awarded funding to The Mid Cheshire branch of the Samaritans. They will be using the funding to refurbish their operations room.
Helping the community go green!
In line with our commitment and strategy to help local business & communities to a low carbon economy, we will continue to look at ways we can support projects such as ones focusing on energy efficiency improvements that residents can implement in their own homes.
Example of our funding is Byley Village Hall, Storengy UK supplied funding for Solar PV panels and the Village Hall funded a Telsar battery to store the energy generated.
School out reach projects
The team are dedicated to supporting the next generation, into STEM careers and we have a number of specialist personnel in our team who are willing to share their expertise with local young people, from primary school to recent graduates, in real life scenarios, encouraging creativity and innovation.
During the recent UK Hydrogen Week, Robin Cannings Head of Commercial Operations presented at Hartford High School. Robin presented on storing hydrogen, talking about transitioning to hydrogen in industrial hubs, the widening of the network to link the hubs and then the use of wind power to convert water to H2 for storage and use later in power stations.
Thank you very much for the talk you delivered to the year 10's today. We really appreciated the time you took out of your busy schedule to visit us. There was lots of 'chatter' about the talk after you left and it was evident that the students had taken a lot from it, many are thinking about the career opportunities presented.
The renewable possibilities with hydrogen as both an industrial and domestic energy source are very exciting, and this is something we will definitely build into our teaching of energy for next year.

Some members of the team took part in a film for the local council Cheshire West and Chester. The film included companies from the local area who are supporting the community in Cheshire, through initiatives including:
- Offering Apprentices
- Supporting the local living wage
- Combating climate change with local projects
We showcased what Storengy UK are doing in these areas and why.
