UK-based developer Aura Power plans to build a large storage system in Maddaloni, southern Italy. It received final approval for the project at the beginning of June.
In a recent statement, Aura Power said it plans to build a 200 MW/800 MWh storage project in Maddaloni, in the southern Italian province of Benevento. It said it has already received final approval for the project.
The company estimates that it will start construction in 2025. Italian law firm Legance and design firm 3E Ingegneria are supporting Aura Power in the development of the property.
“Now the Maddaloni project is a reality thanks to Aura Power’s forward-looking approach,” said Cristina Martorana, Partner at Legance.
Aura Power has more than 20 GW of solar and battery energy storage projects under development in Europe and North America.
Italy is currently preparing an auction system for large-scale storage, which could be launched in 2024.
