Aurora’s Grid is a Swiss Company actively working on Energy Management for Multiple Application (EMMA) Software integration for Battery storage System. Its main originality relies on the battery lifetime extension (up to 40%) and on the possibility of integrating multiple and simultaneous services, such as peak-shaving, renewable self-consumption and frequency control. Moreover, the team has developed a battery-sizing emulating platform integrating EMMA and computing the best BES size to be either coupled with renewable power plant or to be directly connected to the grid.
Voltalia is an International Company involved in the renewable energy sector, listed on the regulated market of Euronext Paris since July 2014. Energy Producer and Service provider in alternative energy production from solar, wind, hydro, biomass and considering the combination of storage solutions to those sources. As an integrated Industrial Company, Voltalia developed a strong experience throughout the value chain of a renewable project including the development and financing of projects, EPC, operation and maintenance. The Group is active in 20 countries, providing services to its customers worldwide. Furthermore, as of December 31, 2020, Voltalia had an operating and under construction capacity of more than 1.3 GW and a portfolio of under development projects representing a total capacity of 8.5 GW.
The direct connection between Voltalia Group and Aurora’s Grid is a clear example of how companies can quickly optimize their effort through rapid design and simulation cycles of battery energy storage coupled with photovoltaic power plant.
Sizing-emulating platforms such as Aurora’s Grid 4.0 are a growing need on the desktop, as more engineers analyze “battery project” products for real-operating conditions while designing. This trend– in which battery twin-digital simulation occurs as part of the daily feasibility study process – benefits companies by providing an improved understanding of the ROI of the targeted project and better estimation of lifetime of the battery as well as C02 footprint reduction with a fast realization of optimal designs.
For nowadays companies supporting energy transition, it is mandatory to shorten development timelines when moving from a preliminary idea of project to a comprehensive feasibility study. The integration of Aurora’s Grid emulating platform facilitates these tasks and strengthens the sound-engineering judgement of the targeted project.
“It is our pleasure to work with such a motivate and dynamic company as Voltalia, with the common goal of supporting energy transition worldwide. We are delighted to share our strong support and foresee a long-term collaboration” said Dimitri Torregrossa, Founder and CEO of Aurora’s Grid LLC.
