Aura Partners

Aura is a catalyst for collaboration in the offshore wind sector. By bringing together professionals from across industry, universities and other expert organisations, we are supporting the development of offshore wind as a sustainable source of low carbon energy for future generations.

Based in the Humber with national and international reach, Aura aims to help solve the technical and operational challenges facing offshore wind and facilitate the development of skills and expertise to meet the needs of this rapidly growing industry, worldwide.

Through working together we are helping to reduce the cost of energy, support companies in the supply chain and strengthen the UK’s position as a world leader in offshore wind.
