How Artificial Intelligence is changing the Energy Sector

Article | February 11, 2020

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, has gained relevance in many different fields of our life, using machine learning to analyse historical and new data in order to make predictions, improve control operation and perform tasks much faster than a human and with more efficiency. The energy sector is using AI to increase energy efficiency by reducing consumption, improving energy storage and grid stability, making predictions about energy consumption, to have more accuracy to find oil & gas and many other applications. When it comes to renewable sources, AI is improving the weather forecasts for the development of new plants and to make better planning of control & maintenance. Let���s take a look in some projects and how they are affecting the energy sector.

RENEWABLE ENERGY: IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON PROJECT SPECIFIC INSURANCE

Article | February 11, 2020

We are certain that everyone involved in renewable energy projects are thinking about the impact Covid-19 will have on your projects being planned, built or operated. The following blog is not to be used as a full guideline, but rather an overview of our perspective on the situation. With the global Covid-19 escalation, it is likely that both the developers and the OEM’s are thinking “what impact will Covid-19 have on the completion of my project” and “can I still meet my PPA deadline?’ The first question to consider is whether a delay caused by a Force Majeure event insurable? The short answer is that no, a delay in this scenario would not be covered. Insurance is about Physical Damage to the subject matter insured, which is the Works. An outbreak of Covid-19 is not a Physical Damage event.
