14:30 - 16:00 Risk mitigation and the role of the insurance sector
Onshore      Offshore    

Room: Hall D

As the wind power industry moves towards competitiveness with thermal generation, support mechanisms will become less important. This will mean investors face a shift in the mix of risk in wind power investments. How will those risks be allocated? The scope for innovation in risk management will need to broaden, and risk protection providers will have to sharpen their suite of tools to get the work done. This session will review where the state of the art is today, and what the industry can expect for the future.
