Intelligent Energy Charitable Trust

Intelligent Energy seeks to make a positive impact on the local community it operates within. As part of this, a Charitable Trust has been launched to support charitable and voluntary organisations, local to Intelligent Energy’s headquarters in Loughborough, which support and aid amongst others; community groups, young people, sport and lifelong learning.

The Trust will look to distribute £100,000 per annum. Beneficiary organisations must be located within and principally benefit people who live in the Charnwood borough. They are not required to have registered charitable status. However, all donations must meet Charity Commission criteria. The Trust is governed by a committee comprised of three Intelligent Energy employees and three external representatives which meets twice a year.  Applications for 2019 funds are now closed, with the next meeting scheduled for March 2020.
