Insurance within the energy system used to be relatively straight-forward with respect to the risks involved, however the complex Energy Transition taking place to reduce global emissions is making this more difficult.  The underwriting and protection of new assets is unfamiliar, therefore spreading awareness and valuable information to increase understanding is a priority.

At this market briefing our guest speakers will discuss the Energy Transition in more detail with the aim of facilitating better assessments of the risks taken by those investing in new assets. They will highlight the definitions, drivers, implications, predictability, timings, applications and costs, in order to equip the attendees with the ability to rise above the noise, debunk the myths pedaled by vested interests and see the proverbial (and sustainable) wood from the trees. By the end of the briefing, attendees will hopefully be furnished with the right set of questions to  those who are seeking their assets to be underwritten.
