Aura Power is currently in the early stages of developing green hydrogen projects in various countries.
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.
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.
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.
Hydrogen is abundant, but always bonded to other chemical elements. When we talk about hydrogen for energy, we’re referring hydrogen that has been separated from its counterparts through electrolysis. Once produced, the energy contained in the hydrogen molecule can be converted into electricity (with devices called fuel cells) or into heat (with combustion processes) depending on its end use.
No. Hydrogen will become a large and vital section of the future of sustainable energy.
Hydrogen has been used for decades within numerous industries. Unlike other substances like gasoline or methane, hydrogen is very light, lighter than air, so in the event of leaks or accidental releases, it rises quickly and is dispersed into the atmosphere. However, hydrogen is a flammable gas and can be potentially dangerous if ignited.
Just like other substances used in industry, safety standards were put in place years ago regarding its production, storage and use, so that allow hydrogen can be used safely.
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. 90% of all atoms are hydrogen atoms, which makes hydrogen very sustainable.
Locating hydrogen production facilities close to grid infrastructure is vital so that we can connect safely into the existing network. It is also important that there are other renewable energy sources, such as solar, nearby to power the electrolysis process.
We look to develop on brownfield land where possible, however small areas of greenfield land can also be suitable for battery storage. The site would be fully decommissioned at the end of its operating life, leaving the land exactly as it was found prior to the project.
A hydrogen electrolyzer is a device that uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. It operates by passing an electric current through water which separates the two types of molecule. The hydrogen gas can be collected and stored for future use.
Fuel cells are then used to generate electricity by recombining hydrogen and oxygen in a controlled chemical reaction to reverse the effects of electrolysis and create electricity. As well as electricity, this reaction creates water vapour, and heat as byproducts which are both safe for the environment.
Together, they form a promising technology for clean and sustainable energy production and utilization.
