As renewable assets increase the diversity of our power generation portfolio so does the need to understand the related risks.
This webinar will address the key issues for assessing the risks associated with wind, solar and battery energy storage systems (BESS) assets. Owners will gain a better understanding of the unique risks of renewable assets and will come away with the information they need to develop an effective approach to managing risk for these facilities.
