Supporting Renewable Energies
In the case of projects involving renewable energies, losses in the double-digit million range are becoming increasingly common. This shows the growing demand for insurance in this branch of industry. Our clients can rely on the technical know-how, worldwide experience and individually tailored insurance solutions offered by our experts. There is great economic potential in the dynamically growing energy industry, but it also faces new risks associated with the new technologies and products. Our reinsurance products and services, complemented by the insurance products and services offered by our affiliated companies, help companies manage these risks so that they can concentrate on their business and profitable growth.

In the US underwriters within Specialty Markets' Corporate Insurance Partner Division provide risk solutions for engineering risks that include builder’s and operational risks for traditional and renewable energies. The underwriters, with advanced degrees in engineering, perform technical due diligence, loss mitigation, and other services related sound underwriting of large engineering risks like wind and solar farms, biomass projects and other energy facilities.
