Alternative/ Renewable Energy

We have experience and background in the placing of insurance programmes for businesses involved in the alternative and renewable energy sector, including:

  • Biomass Plants
  • Biofuels (particularly Landfill Gas)
  • Solar Energy
  • Wind Power
  • Geothermal Energy
  • Combined Heat and Power Plants
  • Energy from waste plants

The number of projects of this type will continue to grow as more and more emphasis is placed on the use of these renewable energy technologies.

Apart from those businesses actually producing the energy we are able to provide cover also for suppliers and contractors involved in this sector.

Covers required are generally standard in nature and will include:

  • Project cover - incorporating loss or damage whilst the plant is in course of construction
  • Advanced Loss of Revenue - a claim during the construction phase can lead to a delay in start date and hence a loss of expected revenue
  • Property Damage when plant is completed - including Breakdown cover particularly of the engines and ancillary equipment
  • Business Interruption - loss of revenue following property damage
  • Employers Liability
  • Public/Products Liability
  • Pollution Liability

There are a limited number of insurers involved in writing insurance for this sector. Through our well established relationships with them we are able to negotiate the appropriate cover at very competitive rates.
