Working with the Community
Storengy UK is proud to work with local community groups, to assist with funding or provide insight into our business.
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
* Funding to replace lighting at WYCF centre with energy saving LEDs
* 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 donated 20 computer kits for pupils in Cheshire West and Chester. And a further 10 laptops donated to Lliswerry High School in North Wales.

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.

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.
Watch the full film below.
In 2022 the local community fund will be used to support more projects including young children through educational initiatives, health and well being charities. With this years fund we have decided to work with Cheshire Community Foundation. This will help us focus on supporting the causes in the local community that really need funding, support our responsible business goals and give us the opportunity to review our social impact, in greater detail.
