Did you know that old incandescent lighting generates heat? Replacing it with efficient LED lighting will reduce electricity costs but may cause a slight increase in heating usage. The key to achieving maximum #energy efficiency results is understanding of how such components interact.

Hartford Steam Boiler's (HSB) Energy Efficiency Insurance can help organisations seeking to cut energy costs and reduce their CO2 footprint. With the expertise and financial backing of HSB and Munich Re acting as a seal of approval, energy efficiency projects are a better credit risk and a more attractive investment than ever.

Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent M8.2 earthquake off the coast of northern Chile. It's currently too early to estimate the overall and insured losses from Tuesday's quake. But they will of course be considerably lower than those of the February 2010 earthquake, which had a magnitude of 8.8 and struck a more densely populated area. Here's a look at the world's top 10 costliest earthquakes from 1980-2013:

Population growth, rising standards of living and dwindling natural water sources are the reasons why more and more seawater desalination plants are being constructed. Seawater desalination plants need a reliable power supply and intensive maintenance. In some countries with a shortage of water, desalination plants constitute a critical part of the infrastructure and can be the target of politically motivated attacks. The absence of weather data can both prejudice the design and, in the case of a loss, the loss adjustment. Storms, the dynamics of the seabed, currents and ships' anchors can also damage the intake pipe. Read more here in Topics Schadenspiegel:

Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) were originally developed mainly for military purposes. But since the ?70s, they've been performing a variety of tasks in ever deeper water, such as inspections, maintenance and construction work, as well as decommissioning, exploration and salvage. Losses involving ROVs are infrequent, but when they do occur, they're usually catastrophic as far as the equipment is concerned. Read more in the latest issue of Topics Risk Solutions:

Over the last few years, we've seen supervisory systems for insurance companies all around the world undergoing transformation. The principles defined by the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) stipulate that both balance sheets and risk capital should be based on economic valuations. The basis of an economic balance sheet - as used for Solvency II, for example - is a valuation of all assets and liabilities in accordance with economic principles.

In a recent Knowledge Series Report, entitled "Reinsurance in the economic balance sheet?, our solvency experts illustrate that the financial strength of reinsurers is not only taken into account within the risk model, but also for accounting purposes.
