“Renewable Energy: the Right Risk Partner Makes the Difference,” was authored by Darren Small, Vice President and Underwriting Manager, ACE USA National Custom Casualty Energy. “As renewable energy sources continue to play an increasingly significant role in producing sustainable energy for the world’s use, our goal is to provide risk management guidance and seamless insurance coverage throughout a project’s lifecycle. This paper addresses the crucial steps in appropriately identifying, managing, controlling and transferring risk, and partnering with experts to manage emerging renewable energy risks right from the planning stage, through construction and into the operational phase,” said Mr. Small.
The paper also provides information on the current growth of renewable and alternative energy sources such as wind, solar, biofuels and biomass, waste to energy and hydro projects.
