Disaster recovery and continuity planning

If there’s a breakdown, damage, disaster or security breach, your plant may be out of service for some time – typically 12 months after a major incident, and potentially longer to get back to similar productivity levels before the event.

Depending on the nature of the incident, you may need to involve the Health and Safety Executive or Environment Agency, which could extend the interruption further. During this time your costs may increase if you have to find a way around the problem and buy alternative materials or back-up equipment. Find out more about how you can manage your risks and recover from a disaster:

Disengaged employees

Recruitment remains a serious issue for the energy sector. It is now more important than ever for renewable energy projects to revisit their recruitment strategy and elevate their efforts to recruit the best talent. Use our calculator to see the cost of disengaged employees, loss of productivity and finding your next new recruit.



The EU’s Environmental Liability Directive in 2007 and the UK’s Environmental Damage Regulations in 2015, both brought tougher environmental liability sanctions. So while your renewable energy operations may not have changed, your potential environmental liabilities may have increased.

We answer the key questions about environmental directives and environmental impairment liability insurance.

Our colleagues in Marsh help demystify the subjects of climate change, sustainability, Environmental Social Governance (ESG) and the Taskforce for Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Fire risks

The risk of fires is a key insurance issue for Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS). This has been brought to attention by news stories such as the blaze at Victoria’s “big battery” project which burned for more than three days.1

Find out what BESS owners, Energy Performance Contracts (EPC) contractors and Operations & Maintenance (O&M) providers can do to mitigate these risks as part of an energy storage insurance programme.
