Risks like extreme weather or cyber are posing greater threats to the energy sector, impacting both the physical structures and the capital returns needed to evolve our energy system to a more sustainable future. Without a solid understanding of the nature of these risks, appropriate adaptation of infrastructure design, new insurance solutions, and policy and regulatory changes that support financing, the existing investment gap might not be closed – with dramatic consequences for global energy security.
Together with the World Energy Council and Marsh & McLennan Companies, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, supported by specialists from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, have taken assessments on what resilience means for the energy sector.
