Corporate Supporter - RenewableUK

Renewable World is proud to be the chosen charity of RenewableUK, the trade and professional body for the UK wind and marine renewables industries. Formed in 1978, and with over 700 corporate members, RenewableUK is the leading renewable energy trade association in the UK.

Renewable World has been receiving support from RenewableUK since 2008. Not only do they make a significant annual core donation to support out work, but they also enable us to communicate with a wide audience within the renewable energy industry and associated supply chain through providing us with gifts in kind such as access to their networks, space to exhibit at their conferences and publicity on their website and in their publications.

Maria McCaffery, Chief Executive of RenewableUK explains;

“ We are delighted to support the work of Renewable World. The fact is that every country in the world, big or small, rich or poor, at this point in time needs more energy from renewables and Renewable World is making this happen. I am also proud of the involvement of some of our member companies such as SSE Renewables, Natural Power, SKM Enviros, Statkraft UK Ltd, International Power and Dong Energy who have been involved in projects that have transformed the lives of some of the world’s most remote and impoverished communities".

RenewableUK have also been supporting our carbon compensation scheme for the last three years by promoting the initiative to delegates attending their conferences. Since 2010, delegates have had the opportunity to compensate for their travel emissions when booking their RenewableUK conference tickets online in one simple and easy process. Donations from conference attendees in 2011 totalled in excess of £2000 and have helped to support the provision of clean water to mountain communities in Nepal through the installation of ram pump technology.

Helen Jones, Director of Events and Marketing at RenewableUK explains that,

“RenewableUK’s member companies are all working towards carbon free energy generation, but we feel it is important to remind individuals attending our events to consider their mode of transport and offer the opportunity to compensate for their carbon emissions. RenewableUK is delighted to support Renewable World through this scheme”. Find out more about our carbon compensation scheme.

RenewableUK employees are also actively involved in supporting Renewable World through fundraising events such as the London Triathlon and Run to the Beat. Find out more about how you can participate in our challenge events and help us to transform the lives of more people living in energy poverty.
