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.
We will prove that in addition to a yearly balance between renewable production and load consumption, we do need to further decrease CO2 footprint of buildings and grids, by storing renewable energy and deploying it when the CO2 footprint of the grid is the worst one! To achieve this goal we are enhancing our Energy Management for Mutiple Application (EMMA), we are using 2nd life battery storage and we futher collaborate with Eaton Group.
We are proud to annoucne that Aurora’s Grid 3.0 sizing/diagnostic platform recieved the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label. You can now also find details about our solution here.

The whole Aurora’s grid team was at Düsseldorf to present the main products of the company.
A lot of interest shown in both the sizing and the energy management software from visitors. We’ll keep the hard work to help with the essential energetic transition.
We are so proud of our milestones 19 months after Aurora’s Grid foundation.
June 2017 - First client, DSO of Lausanne city (Services Industriels de Lausanne) funding the prototype of the software.
August 2017 - Second client, DSO of Canton VD (Romande Energie), life-time computation and optimization of Li-ions battery storage systems.
September 2017 - First version of our energy management software, Aurora’s Grid 1.0. It reduces the ageing of the Li-ions battery up to 45% and its investment cost up to 20%.
January 2018 - Aurora’s Gris is the leading partner for the project ExpSebi focusing on the second-life battery of electric vehicles (partners: HEIA-FR, PSA Groupe and EMPA).
February 2018 - Partnership with PSA Groupe on second-life scenario of Li-ions battery.
March 2018 - Partnership with Leclanché SA, the leading Swiss Li-ions battery manufacturer.
April 2018 - Aurora’s Grid received a grant of 367’680 CHF from Swiss Federal Office of Energy SFOE to industrialize the energy management software of Li-ions battery.
Summer 2018 … stay tuned for the outstanding Aurora’s Grid 2.0 …
We are pleased to announce that Groupe PSA and Aurora’s Grid engage a common study on EV cells ageing in 2nd life stationary usage. We target the deployment of aged lithium-ion cells from electrical vehicle during a second-life for increasing energy self-consumption in smart-building, which is a very good example of Circular Economy.
This collaboration is framed within the project “ExpSEBI, Experimental Evaluation of Second-Life of Lithium-ions cell for Smart-building/micro-grid” at Energy Institute co-chaired by Pr. Elena-Lavinia Niederhäuser and Jean-Philippe Bacher of the University of Applied Sciences (HEIA-FR) in Fribourg, Switzerland.
Aurora’s Grid is honoured to announce the grant of 367’680 CHF received from the Swiss Federal Office of Energy SFOE for the project ECOBATTEM: Eco-friendly and Ageing-Aware Energy Management Software for Li-ions Batteries.
The main deliverable of this project will be an energy management software (EMS) for Li-ions battery storage systems. The EMS will control the batteries ageing with the goal of extending their lifetime and reduce their overall CO2 impact. The software will be validated within June 2019 in three different smart-buildings/microgrids equipped with a rooftop PV plant.
The partners supporting and participating in the ECOBATTEM Pilot project are:
Aurora’s Grid is pleased to announce and welcome its newest board member Luis Philippe Fernandes, as Chief Technical Officer.
Within this role, Luis Philippe Fernandes will support the industrialization of our energy management software for Li-ions battery and the growth of our business.
Luis Philippe Fernandes comes from 18 years of experience at PSA Group whose 10 focused on electric and hybrid vehicle research and development.
This new position at Aurora’s Grid is a great continuation of his career in the disruptive field of Smart-Grids….
We are so glad to start working with Luis...

Dans la lignée de la scale-up DEPsys, une nouvelle startup a rejoint le Smartgrid Hub vaudois: Aurora’s Grid. Cette société, fondée par Dimitri Torregrossa, a développé une solution informatique pour la gestion intelligente des batteries industrielles. Après avoir obtenu, cet été, le soutien du Fonds pour l’efficacité énergétique (FEE) de la Ville de Lausanne pour le développement de son logiciel, l’entreprise vient de signer un deuxième mandat dans le cadre du projet démonstrateur Demo-REel FURIES entrepris par Romande Energie avec le soutien de l'OFEN.
