Large scale solar is one of the most cost effective forms of renewable energy, and in many countries is competitive with fossil fuels, even without assistance from subsidies. Solar photovoltaic (PV) is an increasingly important part of the world’s energy mix; between 2017 and 2018 globally the solar market grew by 30% (IEA, 2019). Despite this growth, 65% of the world’s electricity is still produced from fossil fuels (World Bank, 2015) and electricity demand is set to grow by 57% by 2050 (Bloomberg NEF, 2018). In Europe, whilst Italy (along with Bulgaria, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Cyprus, Finland and Sweden) have met their 2020 renewable energy targets, the UK and Ireland have not. Solar PV must be further utilised in order to meet this demand and minimise further depletion of the planet’s resources.
Aura Power is currently developing solar farms in Canada, Italy, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, Spain and the UK. We have secured 1,300 MW of grid capacity and successfully taken 630 MW through planning. Through a joint venture with ib Vogt GmbH we have a rapidly developing pipeline which we are adding strong, cost effective projects in the most appropriate locations.
