The Fuellers’ Annual Energy Lecture was established in 2005 By Lord Ezra – the former Chairman of the National Coal Board and one of the founding members of the Fuellers; he delivered the first lecture himself and it has been given every year since by a series of prestigious speakers. The event is always well received by an audience from amongst the 110 Livery Companies, the Energy Industry, and Fuellers plus their guests.
Lord Ezra also made a gift to the Charitable Trust fund for the express purpose that financial support could be given if needed for the lecture’s continuance and in 2013 he gave a further gift of £20,000. In recent years the lecture has often been sponsored by a professional firm providing services to the energy sector but this year there is no sponsor and the CTF is underwriting up to £4,000 of the cost from the funds given by Lord Ezra. After this, there will be some £10,000 available for support in future years.
