China - Wind reinsurance facility (English)

United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) worked together with Marsh in assessing the feasibility of a reinsurance facility for large and medium scale wind farms in China. Although wind energy insurance is broadly available with domestic market in China, the domestic insurance industry has limited underwriting experience and expertise in respect of revenue stream protection during construction and operational phases, which inhibits developer’s access to debt refinancing. Therefore, the objective of the reinsurance facility is to improve investment grade credit rating for wind energy projects and attracting alternative risk capital to support new risk management market structures. The reinsurance facility also aims to attract multi-lateral lenders or guarantors within a public-private partnership framework to minimize the need to extend risk and draw specialist engineering consultancy services to a wind energy financial risk management platform on a portfolio versus project basis.
