PHILADELPHIA -- December 20, 2012

ACE USA, the U.S.-based retail operations of the ACE Group, today announced
the availability of a new white paper exploring the insurance and risk
management issues facing the renewable energy industry during new project
development. This new report explains the importance of effective and
proactive risk management strategies, throughout a project lifecycle.

“Renewable Energy: the Right Risk Partner Makes the Difference,” was authored
by Darren Small, Vice President and Underwriting Manager, ACE USA National
Custom Casualty Energy. “As renewable energy sources continue to play an
increasingly significant role in producing sustainable energy for the world’s
use, our goal is to provide risk management guidance and seamless insurance
coverage throughout a project’s lifecycle. This paper addresses the crucial
steps in appropriately identifying, managing, controlling and transferring
risk, and partnering with experts to manage emerging renewable energy risks
right from the planning stage, through construction and into the operational
phase,” said Mr. Small.

The paper also provides information on the current growth of renewable and
alternative energy sources such as wind, solar, biofuels and biomass, waste to
energy and hydro projects. According to Mr. Small, “there is no shortage of
risks in renewable energy. As renewable sources continue to grow, recognizing,
defining and dealing with renewable energy risks will remain a priority. With
the right risk partner, renewable projects can achieve comprehensive risk
management and seamless risk transfer which will help facilitate successful
project rollouts and support long-term production continuity.”
