Investing in renewables
Aura Power is a renewable energy investor, developer and adviser. The company was founded in 2013 and is based in Bristol, United Kingdom.
Our team has recently developed and sold a renewable energy portfolio of over 200MW in the UK. Sites in the portfolio were taken from greenfield, through planning, construction and financing and into operation.
Whilst we still do some greenfield development, our primary focus is on working with other developers to acquire sites or invest in joint ventures where we can deploy our expertise to deliver high-quality renewable energy projects.
We differentiate ourselves by our ability to rapidly complete on and develop new investment opportunities.
Our financing solutions are tailored to the unique risk profile and characteristics of each project. Our team has an excellent proven track record of raising finance for large scale renewable energy projects, and we also have the capability to finance construction exclusively through equity.
