kWh Analytics, Aspen partner in real estate insurance for renewables

kWh Analytics, a leader in climate insurance, has announced the launch of property insurance for renewable energy assets with capacity partner Aspen Insurance. This new product provides coverage against physical damage for solar energy and other renewable projects.

In recent years, limits have been reduced and costs for asset owners have risen significantly, with a need for new solutions to manage and insure risk. kWh Analytics’ property insurance brings new sophistication to the assessment of ownership risk and exposures for renewable assets, leveraging kWh Analytics’ proprietary database of over 300,000 renewable energy assets.

“The shift to a low-carbon economy is the biggest macroeconomic revolution of our generation, and insurance will play a vital role in securing the future. Recognizing that this transformation requires a new approach to pricing, managing and ultimately mitigating the emerging risks of the clean energy asset class, kWh Analytics is committed to underwriting products that enable renewable asset financing,” said Jason Kaminsky , CEO of kWh Analytics . ”
