    Hi
    In the context of Climate change:
    "Future energy projects located in storm-prone areas will face increased capital costs, hardening their assets due to both legislative and insurance pressures"
    Thanks!

    Hello, Trinia:

    The term hard assets usually translates as activos duros or bienes tangibles.

    I don't know exactly how this would be phrased in Spanish, but the idea is that legislative and insurance pressures will prevent these projects from converting hard assets into liquid ones.

    Creo que se refiere a la necesidad de hacer a las estructuras mas resistentes a sucesos como tormentas, mareas altas o el aumento en el nivel del mar que pueden resultar de los cambios climáticos. ¨fortaleciendo sus activos (o inmuebles)¨ seria una una posibilidad.
