The power behind renewable energy projects

Renewable energy supply projects face many challenges and unique risks. Insurance is often seen as a necessary evil driven by either legal or contractual requirements. However, engaging with insurers early on can be a cost benefit. It enables them to review your designs to ensure the right loss controls are factored in and the correct construction and operational risks controls are implemented. Broker selection is also key to:

  • Assist you to negotiate better terms on finance.
  • Reduce the risk of additional CAPEX costs due to retrofitting insurer requirements.
  • Understand insurer risk appetite to ensure that your site is insurable once operational.
  • Utilise knowledge of the renewable energy insurance market to benchmark and flag any potential risks or claims that could occur at your project, aiming to reduce your claims costs.

Luckily, we understand this complex industry and the various associated risks. So, whether you have a new start up project, or you're a more established power generation, we can help.

Renewable energy insurance FAQs

Your policy should match the specific complexities of your project and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. We work with insurers to tailor coverage to suit your needs from project planning through to operational. This can include product cover such as:

  • Construction/erection all risks (EAR) and liability covers (TPL), plus delay in start-up.
  • Owner controlled insurance programme (OCIP)
  • Operational 'all risks' property damage, machinery breakdown and business interruption.
  • Environmental liability.
  • Marine cargo including (DSU) / advance loss of profit (ALOP).
  • Employers, public liability and products liability, Directors & Officers (D&O) and trustee liability.

The cost of your insurance will depend on many factors such as:

  • The types and level of cover you require
  • The loss controls that you have in place
  • The maintenance of your project
  • The installed capacity of your project
  • The security and access to the site.
