You may have already heard the news this month: Swiss Re drew a new 'line in the sand' when it comes to stopping climate change. As reported in GTM, Swiss Re stopped insuring businesses with high exposure to thermal coal. When the world's second largest reinsurer classifies an entire type of power as "uninsurable," the power markets listen.
Instead, as part of “a progressive and structured shift away from fossil fuels,” Swiss Re has “invested in a new product with kWh Analytics, dubbed the Solar Revenue Put, which drives down investment risk by guaranteeing solar project performance, making these projects cheaper to finance.”
At kWh Analytics, we’re excited to share that we are currently in the process of transacting Solar Revenue Puts on $200m of solar power plants.
In addition, we have recently released free tools for our industry, including the Solar Lendscape and the Asset League Tables.
As always, feel free to reach out with feedback or questions you have about solar risk management.
