What we do
Our main purpose is to give a voice to the Energy Industry within the City of London and to help represent all aspects of energy. Our current drive is to assist and advise on how best to reduce carbon emissions whilst maintaining the future energy needs required for industrial and domestic use going forward. The Company is a great platform for entertaining and socialising with other likeminded people in our field and gives excellent networking opportunities.
All Livery Companies have military affiliates, a tradition dating back to King John and the original formation of the livery. In this tradition The Fuellers has a number of affiliations with military units in the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. Men and women serving in these units compete for Fuellers prizes each year and attend Fuellers functions, all of which are funded through the Fuellers Charitable Trust Fund. In return members of The Fuellers are regularly invited to attend training and open days with our military affiliates. This gives both members and our military affiliates time together to understand each other’s requirements in energy supply and logistics. This is another social and networking opportunity for all involved.
The work of the Fuellers Charitable Trust Fund also includes support for education, schools and other activities aimed at encouraging individuals into the energy sector.

The Fuellers Charitable Trust Fund is growing in size and helps many disadvantaged people. The Trust has been very active in education and introducing pupils and students of all ages to the energy industry.
Our help ranges from providing equipment for schools affiliated with the Company to providing an annual A level Scholarship for studying engineering. The Fuellers' Charles Stephenson Clarke Award is awarded to students at City University, who take part in an annual energy project which is judged by members of the Company.
Members of the Company are also often invited to be judges, mentors or speakers at a number of schools and charities with the aim of promoting the energy industry and encouraging students to look further at it for their future careers.
We do all this whilst enjoying the wonderful old traditions of the City of London, meeting in some of the most wonderful surroundings and having close contact with many high profile people.
