Where we work

Canada

Our Activities

Aura Power is supporting Canada’s transition to low-carbon generation. We are focused on developing a portfolio of around 380MWp of solar photovoltaic (PV) parks across Southern Alberta. Our specialist development team has a deep understanding of the permitting and development process.

Our Approach

We work closely with the relevant Distribution Framework Operators (DFO), the AESO, Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) and the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) to ensure our projects meet and exceed all regulatory and environmental standards. Our Canadian Project Management Office (PMO) is based in Calgary.

Our joint venture partner for our Canadian solar development pipeline is ib vogt GmBH, a top-tier global solar EPC and development company.

Our Canadian subsidiary, Aura Power Renewables Ltd (British Columbia) is an active member of the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA)

Italy

Our Activities

We have around 80 MWp of solar PV and 400MW of utility-scale battery storage projects in development across Italy. In addition to this our special development team are working on a combined pipeline of around 200MW of solar PV and battery projects.

Our Approach

We work with grid operators, landowners, technical consultants and local stakeholders to identify and develop the most viable projects. Through these interactions we can ensure our projects meet and exceed all regulatory and environmental standards. Our Italian team operates between Bristol and Italy.

Lithuania

Our Activities

Aura Power is focused on developing a portfolio of large scale solar photovoltaic (PV) projects across Lithuania. We have secured land for 300MW and are developing a number of other projects to add to our pipeline.

We work with world-class German engineering company ibvogt GmBH, which has 1.9 GW of solar power plants worldwide in its portfolio.

Our Approach

Our team of local experts have extensive experience of developing renewable energy projects in Lithuania. They are based in Vilnius and secure land and grid by working with Lithuanian landowners and the system operator, LitGrid. They also manage all municipal and national permitting. Our team based in the UK headquarters helps develop early stage projects by screening land and ensuring we only develop commercially viable projects.

Portugal

Our Activities

Aura Power is focused on developing a portfolio of around 1GWp of solar photovoltaic (PV) parks across Portugal. Our specialist development team successfully secured 168MW of grid capacity at auctions in July 2019.  We will aim to turn this secured capacity into utility scale solar farms over the next three years.

Our Approach

Our team has a deep understanding of the permitting and development process in Portugal, and we work closely with the various stakeholders to ensure our projects meet and exceed all regulatory and environmental standards. These interactions enable us to select and mature the most commercially viable projects. Our Portugal Project Management Office (PMO) is based in Braga.

Projects

In 2019, we were one of the most successful bidders in Portugal at auction and secured 168MW of grid network capacity.

We continue to work on an active pipeline of projects in Portugal and will update our website as our plans progress.

Republic of Ireland
