Bioenergy – Smart coverage to promote investments in innovative energy generation

Global investments in the renewable energy industry have seen unprecedented growth in recent years. While the bioenergy sector holds great financial potential for all stakeholders involved, there are still perils that must be faced.

Green Tech Solutions offers developers, investors and lenders insurance solutions to manage risks, cover unexpected repair costs and protect the financial viability of the project. With our Bioenergy Plant Performance Insurance, we offer better investment protection and consistent revenue stream support for owners. Together with our clients, we develop customized risk solutions to fulfill all individual needs and ensure a perfectly fitting insurance structure.

Five reasons you should consider talking to us:

1. You want to attract investors.

With our Bioenergy Plant Performance Insurance, we enable bioenergy plant owners to optimize their liquidity and financial stability, even in the face of an unexpected production shortfall. With the support of Green Tech Solutions, a specialized unit at Munich Re, Munich Re is able to provide tailored solutions that enable your business to transfer risk and embrace growth more readily.

Through the support of Munich Re’s strong team of diverse industry experts, bioenergy plant owners can finance projects comprehensively and more cost-efficiently. A strong partnership with Munich Re indicates to potential investors and competitors the quality and sustainability of a plant’s technology and business plan. By streamlining processes and making businesses more transparent, investors can better assess the risks and therefore are more readily willing to invest capital.

2. You want to protect your investment.

The bioenergy industry is rapidly growing and as plants move forward utilizing new technologies to remain competitive, unpredictability in performance can become a risk factor. We are able to provide confidence during these times by hedging the risk of underperformance of bioenergy plants and tech thus guaranteeing a stable cash flow and investment payback. To reduce adverse effects even further, we also offer our Repair Cover for unexpected maintenance costs to ensure steady output with minimum downtime.

Don’t lose confidence in your project: Talk to us.

3. You want to stabilize your revenue streams.

The two major threats to a company’s revenue stream are a shortfall in production and unscheduled repair costs. The Bioenergy Plant Performance Insurance is supported by an expert team that focuses directly on the risk management of both of these threats.

Stay ahead of uncertainties: Talk to us.

4. You want to protect your balance sheet.

The Bioenergy Plant Performance Insurance grants recovery from loss in revenues in low production years thereby ensuring debt obligations and maintaining a plant’s financial stability. In addition, the Repair Cover can further mitigate risks by covering unexpected and unscheduled repair costs.

Remain consistent even during low production years: Talk to us.

5. You want to benefit from our innovative bioenergy insurance

Every project faces different challenges and risks. The specifics of each project call for bespoke risk solutions. That is why, all of our products for bioenergy plants can be adjusted to all involved project parties’ preferred duration of coverage, amount of risk transfer, or even individual insurance budget based on debt service, limits and the extent of coverage. By relying on our technical expertise and our strong financial backing, we are able to deliver flexible insurance structures that meet every individual demand.
