In 2019, only 11% of global primary energy came from renewable technologies. Today, the London market is insuring major renewable energy projects all over the globe as the pressure to shift away from fossil fuels intensifies.

However, while the energy landscape is evolving, solutions for the traditional energy and power sector are still at the core of what we do at Alesco. From fossil to forecourt, the London market has long supported the energy sector, holding 55% of the world’s energy risks.

Alesco boasts 90 energy, power, and renewables risk-transfer specialists, and we serve more than 500+ energy clients globally. We assist oil field contractors, energy investors, national oil companies, banks and traders on traditional energy and power, and greener solutions.

Wherever your business sits in this complex sector, we can support through specialty insurance products and risk management expertise.




Our team's experience ranges from arranging and managing energy insurance programs on behalf of independent companies, through to representing some of the world's largest oil and gas companies. Clients include exploration and production (E&P) companies, drilling contractors, oilfield service companies and integrated energy companies.

With a range of underwriting facilities in place, and insurers committed to offering competitive terms and alternative policy wordings, we are able to continually test the parameters of available coverage.

We can provide a wide range of coverage, including but not limited to:

• Property Damage

• Control of Well/Operators Extra Expense

• Business Interruption/Loss of Production Income/Loss of Hire
