Energy Storage

The next logical step of FirstNRG as a renewable energy insurance broker was to enter the energy storage market. We can provide comprehensive insurance cover for the protection of developers and owners/asset management companies and their energy storage projects during development, construction and operational phase.

Large scale energy storage projects are now an essential part of the future of the energy market in the US. With the National Grid having a requirement to procure ‘back up’ storage to improve energy stability supply and subsequently meet their own active power output target.

The insurance market still does not understand well the energy storage and in its infancy, FirstNRG has worked with leading companies within the industry to define an insurance policy specifically for energy storage projects.

Our team in Europe works with the pioneers of the energy storage in Germany. We provide insurance protection for more than 60 MW capacity of Battery Energy Storage Systems worldwide. The projects are ranging from 1 MW up to 50MW including the following energy storage systems:

  •  Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) – Lithium-ion, Lead – titanate etc.
  • Pumped Hydroelectricity Storage (PHS)
  • Pumped Heat Electricity Storage
  • Liquid Air Energy Storage
  • Hydrogen
  • Flywheel
  • Supercapacitor
