2. Spotlight on Business Interruption Insurance

Business interruption insurance is a complex topic for even the most experienced risk professionals. In fact, most ‘off the shelf’ business interruption coverages fall short of meeting the specific circumstances of energy and power operations.

In this edition, we unpack why one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to business interruption insurance, particularly for the energy and power sector.

Following on from key developments in the United Kingdom surrounding the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Business Interruption Test Case, which will determine whether COVID-19 related claims are covered by business interruption policies, we also provide a quick legal round up on what this means for the sector. For more specific developments within Australia, check out our latest Australian COVID-19 Business Interruption Test Case Update.

3. Demystifying common insurance clauses

In this regular feature, we take a look at common clauses found in energy insurance that are often not well understood, and try to look at the intention of these clause and what they may cover or exclude. In this edition, we examine ‘expediting expenses’ clauses commonly seen within many property damage policies.
