Cross-class solutions

The energy industry is transforming as demand intensifies for more sustainable, diverse sources of power.

The transition to a resilient lower-carbon economy depends on innovation and long-term strategic thinking, supported by insurance partners that understand the complexities, the risks, and the potential of new and varied energy technologies.

AXIS Energy Transition Syndicate 2050 (S.2050) brings together cross-class expertise to provide holistic, specialty risk solutions for activities and assets associated with replacing or displacing fossil fuels with lower-carbon alternatives during the energy transition phase.

Greater Certainty card image

Greater Certainty

Every business is unique, requiring a varied mix of insurance coverage especially as they invest, develop, and engage with more sustainable energy sources and practices. When multiple risks require coverage, there often comes multiple insurers, opening up the potential for cover gaps, inconsistencies and even dual insurance. AXIS provides greater certainty – you have one route to access the lead insurance capacity needed for your customers as they progress on their energy transition journey.

Ease of Access

For any risks that fall within our S.2050 appetite, please contact your usual AXIS underwriter. Find us at Lloyd's

If the risk requires multiple lines of cover, you will be assigned one key point of contact. Your contact will coordinate with lead underwriters from the diverse lines of business within AXIS that the customer requires along their energy transition journey.

Navigating Risk in the Energy Transition card image

Report: Navigating Risk in the Energy Transition

The energy transition is among the biggest challenges of our day. To understand more about what businesses need from the insurance industry, and the barriers and motivators they face in their energy transition journeys, we commissioned extensive research of 600 energy stakeholders. Read the report Navigating Risk in the Energy Transition to find out more.

Activities and assets in scope

We provide cover for risks which are a demonstrable part of global energy transition. The activity or asset being covered will be allowing the company, organization, or country to strategically move from a reliance on carbon-based products to more sustainable energy sources and practices.

Activities in scope 1 card image

Activities in scope

  • The replacement of existing, fossil fuel assets with renewable energy capacity
  • The displacement of energy capacity with renewable energy capacity. The construction of renewable energy assets may exist alongside fossil fuel assets in emerging and developing economies
  • Construction of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) and gas-fired assets only where the asset will reduce the organization or country carbon footprint
  • Projects which improve or mitigate the impacts of existing energy technology

Enabling and supporting activities which are essential to the above are also in scope. For example, liabilities associated with the financing of energy transition projects.

Activities in scope 2 card image

Assets in scope

  • Predominantly power generation including hydropower, renewable energy, nuclear, biomass, gas fired power plants, LNG power plants, hydrogen production, carbon capture/storage
  • Storage and conversion technologies including battery plant and EV battery construction, hydrogen manufacturing, LNG terminals, hydrogen-ready pipeline retrofitting
  • Crucial distribution infrastructure for electricity distribution including battery storage, transmission networks and plants, cross border interconnectors
  • Decommissioning and disposal of ‘old’ infrastructure in the support of the above

Enabling and supporting activities which are essential to the above are also in scope. For example, liabilities associated with the financing of energy transition projects.
