Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency

Green Tech Solutions: Let’s enable sustainable growth

Sustainable energy production is the global challenge if we are to meet the ambitious Paris Agreement on net-zero goals. This challenge also creates huge business potential. To grow in this lucrative yet volatile market, entrepreneurs need to convince both clients and private and public investors of their products’ long-term reliability. But green energy technologies usually come with lots of uncertainties and an inherent risk of performance volatility. This keeps investors from investing and customers from adopting these technologies.

Growing profitable business while tackling climate change

Munich Re’s Green Tech Solutions unit provides the necessary protection backed by Munich Re’s financial strength. Our insurance guarantees the long-term performance of green technologies and is a seal of approval for outstanding technical product quality. Our globally experienced and locally accessible team will guide you safely through all uncertainties, providing coverage for potential performance or warranty claims.

We are pioneers – with a track record of more than 12 years in renewables, we support the energy transition by absorbing the technical risks – enabling entrepreneurs to concentrate on their business and boost their sales. Today we already have 52 GW of renewable energy production, backed by our warranty insurances. That is more than two thirds the capacity of all photovoltaic systems operating in Germany. 
Be it wind, photovoltaic or hydrogen; sustainable technologies like carbon capture or energy storage – we enable sustainable growth and make sure your investment will still be profitable for decades to come. 

Photovoltaics is a fast-growing industry, but its dynamic growth and large projects are also associated with risks. At the same time, investors and lenders value investment security.

  • Help manufacturers protect their module performance over a period of up to 30 years.
