We are a powerful consortium. We bring together a wide range of experts from manufacturers, developers, operations and maintenance, skills providers, universities, local governments and others to drive the continuous innovation of the offshore wind sector.

Our mission is to identify opportunities to innovate and collaborate in offshore wind, to find solutions for the challenges we face from technical and operational to economic and societal, working as a facilitator and catalyst to provide ground-breaking solutions with our partners - for the region, the UK and globally.

Rooted in the UK’s Energy Estuary, Aura is at the heart of the Humber Advanced Cluster and identified as a key delivery partner in the UK Government’s Offshore Wind Sector Deal.
