About this event

A Deep Dive into Strategies for Risk Assessment, Loss Prevention, and Premium Optimisation

Explore new developments in the insurance dynamics of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) with us.

The rapid growth of energy storage has created challenges for insurers seeking to identify appropriate risks posed by a new and complex asset class. For owners and operators, this can mean grappling with high premiums that do not always reflect the unique characteristics of their projects. New technologies providing detailed insights into the health of battery energy storage systems offer opportunities for improved safety and more accurate operating costs from bespoke insurance policies.

In this webinar, we’ll bring together experts from across the insurance and energy storage landscape to unravel and make sense of the complexities of insuring BESS and reveal how insurance policies can be optimised with a data-driven approach.

We’ll explore:

  • How one of the largest energy storage players in the world has secured enhanced insurance conditions and improved safety through a calculated and unique approach to its risk management strategy.
  • How energy storage owners and insurance providers are working together to understand risk better.
  • How operators are using predictive battery analytics to optimize asset management.
