Unmanned Aerial System Use in the Power and Energy Sectors


The commercial use of unmanned aerial systems (UASs), more commonly known as drones, may be in its infancy but analysts agree that their deployment potential is significant. As the technology evolves, its potential application to the power and energy sectors expands, along with the advantages it may deliver.

This adviser covers:

  • Application an advantages.
  • UAS deployment across the power and energy.
  • The need for regulation.
  • Security.
  • Third-party liability considerations.
  • Facilitating claims.

UASs will play an ever-increasing role within the power and energy sector, both operationally and as a risk management tool. As regulatory frameworks develop and insurance markets open up, organisations should be mindful of a growing reliance on the technology.
