Working with the Community
Storengy UK is proud to work with local community groups, to assist with funding or provide insight into our business.
Helping the community during COVID-19
Storengy UK support a number of different groups in the community, Key workers, delivery companies, young people, food banks.
Our organisation is keen to work with the local community supporting young people, green initiatives, Charities 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 initiatives have been:
* Matched contribution to our chosen charity
* Donation of activity packs and tinned goods to the Cheshire food hub
* Donation of iPads to a local care home
* Donation of 3D-printed face shields to Morrisons Logistics in Gadbrook Park, during the pandemic.
* In collaboration with the Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP), we have pledged 20 computer kits for pupils in Cheshire West and Chester.
* Donated Face masks to a local Primary School Rudheath Academy.

Helping the community go green!
In line with our commitment and strategy to help local business & communities to a low carbon economy, we will be increasing our program of roadshows and events in the local area and looking at ways we can support projects such as ones focusing on energy efficiency improvements that residents can implement in their own homes.
Storengy UK created a Local Community Fund (LCF), in 2008 to support 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 in the local area.
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.
Byley Parish have worked closely with Storengy UK 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 UK have contributed through their local community fund to some projects within the 5 effected parishes, for which we’re very grateful.

In 2021 the local community fund will be used to support more projects that assist with the transition to zero carbon and a number of health & well being and educational initiatives focusing on the next generation.

Virtual work experience
We worked with local college, Sir John Deane’s, on a virtual work experience project for year 12’s, the students brought energy and enthusiasm to the task of helping us with ideas to achieve our goal of being carbon neutral by 2025.
Thank you to Dana and Joe for delivering 16 desktops and 4 laptops to Xaverian College.
We are truly delighted to be able to support the college with our donation, which will enable the academy students to study from home.
