Renewable Energy Insurance from Hartford Steam Boiler

Growing renewable energy markets and developing technologies are driving a need for specialized engineered insurance solutions. Hartford Steam Boiler (HSB) recognizes the importance of providing customized renewable energy solutions because no two renewable energy projects are the same, and the risk landscape for each project is different.

Over a renewable energy project's life cycle, developers, facility operators and investors are exposed to a broad spectrum of risks across all lines of business, including: property, equipment breakdown, casualty as well as special financial risks.  Faster technology development cycles, significant capital investments, different financing requirements and output commitments also increase the risk situation.

Renewable Energy Risk Solutions from HSB

In response HSB has developed a suite of insurance products and services to help our customers protect their renewable energy investments and optimize their profit.

We provide solutions for the following renewable energy technologies:

  • Wind power
  • Solar/ photovoltaic installations
  • Biomass and biofuel power generation
  • Hydroelectric plants
  • Geothermal plants

Specifically designed for the renewable energy customer, our products reach beyond equipment breakdown coverage to also include engineered lines such as property, casualty and innovative financial risk products from project development through operational cover.
