I've managed to get pretty comparable (not 100% sure) battery life on AOSP compared to Stock Roms. Not to speak for the developer but yes this will increase your battery life. The only thing is that there is a lot you can tweak which will have an effect on your battery life. This is what i do.
Turn mpdecision off. MPdecision is a hotplug driver made by qualcomm that can be disabled in AOSP. As of now its always active on stock roms. I'm still trying to figure out where to get the Francisco Franco hotplug drivers, which are prefered.
Underclock your cpu/gpu - I like to keep my max at 1026mhz and my gpu at 200mhz. I don't notice any significant lag.
Undervolt your cpu
Use a intellidemand/tune your on demand governor
Obviously wake locks come into play as well. I like to use better battery stats to see whats keep my stuff awake.
Finally keep your mobile data off when your not using it
Sorry if I'm just telling you stuff you know, just trying to be informative.
