Rosyth Battery Storage

Battery Storage

Aura Power is working on a renewable energy proposal in Rosyth, Alberta. The renewable energy facility includes a 210.72MW battery energy storage system located on privately owned land.

Located on the SE 16-42-9 W4M, near the intersection of RangeRoad 93 and TWP Road 422. The Project will consist of a lithium-ion BESS to store electricity for discharge into the AEIS (Alberta Integrated Electrical System).

Battery storage systems, such as this, play a crucial role in the decarbonisation of our electricity network with much-needed increases in renewable energy sources. Batteries store excess energy at times of low demand i.e. from a solar farm on a sunny day, and discharge the energy back into the grid when it is needed the most.

Further details on the proposal and frequently asked questions can be found further down this page.

Listening to the views of the local community is very important to us and your feedback has helped shape our design.

We will be holding a Community Open House in the local area on the 15th of February where you will be able to learn more about the project and ask questions to our project team.

We will then take on board the feedback received to feed into the final design of the facility.

Our Proposal

The preliminary site layout takes into account various constraints such as: The preliminary site layout takes into account various constraints such as:

• Bird migration surveys

• Wetland setbacks

• Wildlife setbacks

• Road setbacks

• Property line setbacks

• Transmission line right-of-way and setback

• Oil & Gas setbacks

• Efficient use of land

We have undertaken a number of surveys to help inform our proposal. These include;

A detailed Noise Impact Assessment (NIA) has been completed to ensure the Project adheres to Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) Rule 012: Noise Control. A copy of NIA will be included in the AUC application.

Comprehensive environmental studies including wildlife studies, vegetation studies, wetlands delineation and habitat mapping are in the process of being completed for the Project.

At the end of the project’s life, it will be decommissioned or re-powered.

When decommissioned, all equipment will be salvaged and recycled where possible.

Reclamation will be consistent with the Alberta Conservation and Reclamation Directive for Renewable Energy Operations or applicable legislation at the time. The landowner can resume normal agricultural operations following the lifespan of battery storage project.

A decommissioning plan and an initial conservation and reclamation plan will be developed.
