Renewable Energy Risk Management 2012

Following highly successful editions in New York and London in 2011 The Renewable Energy Risk Management event returned to help you make your projects bankable. With a unique delegation made up of risk-focused decision makers and advisors, this was an exclusive opportunity to benchmark your risk management strategy and improve your risk profile.

Insurance, both policy and derivative based perform the duel function of protecting against future financial losses, and helping to secure finance and investment. Join us at Renewable Energy Risk Management to learn how to use risk management tools to maximise investor confidence while protecting future earnings.

The 2011 conference was highly productive and provided a crucial forum for Heads of Risk as they work to satisfy investors with stringent risk profiles, whilst minimising the cost of insurance tools: 

“This conference allowed people with in-depth knowledge of the renewables field to exchange ideas and debate where the green insurance sector needs to grow. In particular the mix of brokers, underwriters, policy advisors and insurance purchasers enabled a great level of knowledge sharing and cross-fertilisation of ideas”.
E. Cahalin, Chief Accounting Officer, Mainstream Renewable Power - Attendee at Renewable Energy Risk Management 2011

New for 2012

Risk management strategies employed by developers, utilities and their brokers are becoming more sophisticated. In response to demand from the industry, the event was expanded to encompass a greater variety of insurance and hedging tools and now takes place over two days. This will enable greater focus on derivatives and other, increasingly popular hedging tools, as well as analysis of classic insurance offerings as they adapt to reflect the market. How for instance will the insurance industry respond to the growing demand for political risk insurance? Click here to see the full agenda
