Aura Power is developing battery storage systems in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Northern America, Italy and Lithuania. We currently have over 600MW of grid capacity secured in the UK and have successfully taken over 150MW through planning.
Utility-scale energy storage supports our transition to a low carbon future. It enables national electricity grids to accommodate increased penetration of generation from intermittent sources such as renewables, as well as enabling improved efficiency from fossil-fuel generation, such as natural gas.
Global battery storage capacity is expected to grow 20 times over by 2030.
How does it work?
Battery storage facilities are ideally suited to provide ancillary services to national electricity grid networks. These services help the network operators maintain the correct frequency of alternating current on the grid, along with providing complimentary balancing and reserve services. In certain countries, battery storage systems can enhance security of energy supply through capacity market mechanisms.
Lithium-Ion technology is the most cost effective and commercially mature of the energy storage systems available.
By connecting a standalone utility-scale project directly to the distribution or transmission grid, we are able to deliver these services at reduced cost and achieve fast response times.

Offering a fully-funded, co-located battery storage solution for medium to large scale electricity users, allowing your business to manage load and reduce cost.
Reducing your energy bill
Aura Power works closely with commercial electricity consumers with high power requirements, such as industrial facilities. In the UK, we have partnered with Thrive Renewables to offer a fully-funded, battery-based energy storage solution, which will deliver energy-bill savings along with the potential to unlock additional revenues from ancillary services provided by the battery system.
How does it work?
By placing a battery storage system on your side of the electricity meter, we can decouple the power consumed by your facility from the power drawn from the electricity grid, without interfering with your operations on site. This enables us to reduce the burden of non-commodity costs, including use of system charges, which can be a significant component of your energy costs. We can capture additional revenues by providing ancillary services to National Grid. At no cost to you, we will fund and manage the development, installation and operation of the system.
