WIND, WAVE & TIDAL
Future Developments & Challenges
Adam Hearn, Lead Underwriter, London Market
AN INDUSTRY PACKED WITH INNOVATION…
From wind turbines in the ’80’s to floating ones…
…we like playing our part in supporting the industry’s
development.
Commercial in confidence В© RSA Insurance Group PLC 2010 all rights reserved
AN INDUSTRY WHICH IS CONTINUALLY EVOLVING….
Today a typical onshore wind turbine has a 90m hub height and each blade
is 45m in length…
………..There are turbines in development stage which have a 200m
hub height and 100m blade!
Commercial in confidence В© RSA Insurance Group PLC 2010 all rights reserved
AN INDUSTRY WHICH IS CONTINUALLY EVOLVING….
The 100m blade would just about fit on a football pitch
When we consider BI size matters!

PROTECTING THE FUTURE OF THE WIND INDUSTRY
• Larger turbines
• New designs
• New manufacturers
• New methods of installation
• Different vessels
• Logistics onshore/offshore
• Increasing demands from financial institutions
• Manufacturing bottle necks
• Availability of qualified service and
maintenance guys
• The new oil rig? People living on
transformer stations
Commercial in confidence В© RSA Insurance Group PLC 2010 all rights reserved
TRANSPORTATION LOGISTICS
• availability of the
appropriate vehicles
• appropriate routes need
planning
• the need to liaise with
the police for traffic
assistance
• influenced by the
weather conditions
… all of this takes time
and will impact the
Business Interruption
Commercial in confidence В© RSA Insurance Group PLC 2010 all rights reserved
TRANSPORTATION LOGISTICS OFFSHORE
• availability of the
appropriate vessels
• there are only limited
number of boats able to
ship the turbines
• cost of hiring these
vessels
• influenced by the
weather conditions
… all of this takes time
and will impact the
Business Interruption

BIOENERGY & SOLAR
Future Developments & Challenges
Steve Kelly, Bioenergy & Solar Global Centre of Excellence
PROTECTING THE FUTURE OF THE BIOENERGY INDUSTRY
• Technology - No homogeneity,
Corrosion issues, Key item sourcing
• Operators - Farmers through to
utilities
• Motivation - Revenue generation
verses cost avoidance
• Market - Carbon neutral verses
carbon free
• Fuel supply - Erosion of green
credentials
Commercial in confidence В© RSA Insurance Group PLC 2010 all rights reserved
PROTECTING THE FUTURE OF THE SOLAR INDUSTRY
• Technology - development of
thermal plants and thin film
technology
• Cost - Solar is becoming more and
more an economically attractive
solution
• Efficiency - Heat storage
• Natural Perils - Wind and Hail
• Distribution - Population versus
location
Commercial in confidence В© RSA Insurance Group PLC 2010 all rights reserved
PROTECTING THE FUTURE OF THE SMALL HYDRO INDUSTRY
• Equipment - supply of equipment
from new entrants to the Global
stage
• Cost - other technologies becoming
more cost effective, hydro less so
as still labour has intensive civil
works
• Natural Perils - Landslide,
Snowslide, and Flood, with more
extreme weather events the risks
are likely increasing
• Distribution - Often, hydro plants are
in remote areas resulting in T&D
problems

ASK THE AUDIENCE...
Will more electricity be generated
from renewable energy sources in
2050 than fossil fuels?
