Over the next three years, the group brought in actuarial and reinsurance consultants to complete extensive business research. The group developed a business plan that would take a course similar to two other worldwide insurance companies. The plan was to initially start as a group captive, evolve to an industrial reinsurance company and then evolve to become an insurance company. In 2005 Energi was incorporated and in 2006 the company commenced operations as a group captive until 2008. In 2009 Energi merged with Conifer Insurance Agency, Inc. D/B/Conifer Energy and became an industrial reinsurance company. As an industrial reinsurance company the company acted as a program administrator and reinsurer. The program administration company provided underwriting, distribution management, loss prevention and claims oversight. Insurance company partners would act as the insurance company and these insurance companies would cede a portion of the business to Energi’s reinsurance operations. From 2008 to 2010 the company expanded its shareholder base which now includes 70 Northeast Energy Distribution Companies (policyholders) and a leading worldwide reinsurance company. Energi’s products are exclusively distributed through a network of independent insurance agents.
