Renewable energy projects are complicated. There are many constituents; system manufacturers, developers/EPCs, owners, financers, tax equity providers, operation and maintenance organizations, power off-takers, and more. The technology is new, or relatively new, and the financing and performance requirements are long term; 10-30 years in many cases. These complexities create opportunities.

New Energy Risk approaches each engagement as a problem solver. Each client is unique in its needs, so each solution is customized. Operating with the belief that insurance capacity should be used wisely and should be cost effective, we tailor a contract that is relevant; not too much or too little.

Brokers and other project participants come to us with complex risk issues that require thoughtful, purpose-built solutions. “Off the shelf” products are either too expensive or do not address the actual need. Our team designs, quantifies, structures, and underwrites bespoke policies that result in more efficient and cost effective solutions. Our broad industry experience and set of relationships provide the ability to implement these solutions with leading insurance carriers.
