What we do

Our main purpose is to give a voice to the Industry within the City 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 Army, RAF, Royal Navy and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. Men and women serving in these units compete for Fuellers prizes each year and attend Fuellers functions. In return members of The Fuellers are often 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 our Charitable Trust Fund includes support for education, schools and other activities aimed at encouraging individuals into the energy sector.

The Fuellers Charitable Trust is growing in size and helps many disadvantaged people. The Trust has been very active in education and introduction 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.

Apart from the financial help members of The Company are 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 at our industry 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.

Current Lecture


Energy in the City

Christopher Hayward, Chairman of the Planning and Transportation Committee,City of London Corporation

The City Corporation’s Planning and Transportation Committee is responsible for taking the lead in preparing plans and strategies for the future development of the City. I will seek to outline the City Corporation’s vision of how the City can and should change to remain a leading international financial and business centre as part of London’s offer as one of the few truly global cities. Part of this vision is the need for a progressive energy policy and actions to reduce the use of carbon for fuel in order to address important global and local issues such as climate change, flood risk and poor air quality in cities.
