In your Community
Putting something back
RWE Innogy UK’s community investment programme supports the long-term development of the communities in which we operate. The funding is used by local people to make life-enhancing improvements to their own communities – they chose how best the funding should be spent.
Our aim is to support these communities to use the funding to provide them with the resources, flexibility and support to grasp their ambitions and plan for the future with more confidence. We are now seeing the fruits of this as more and more projects get off the ground and more dreams are realised.
From 2011 to 2013, renewable energy sites operated by RWE Innogy UK invested nearly £3 million into communities across the UK, with decisions made by local people.
On and offshore projects that have been successful in achieving planning consent will invest up to a further £76.7 million into local communities over their lifetime. Funding is subject to the final installed capacity of sites and will become available once the sites have been constructed.
It’s not just funding – our volunteering programmes enable communities to benefit directly from the commitment and expertise of our staff. Our education programme allows us to share our passion for protecting the environment and enthusing young people about opportunities in the renewables industry.
