Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM) has formed a specialist renewable energy team to expand its onshore energy offering.

The team – headed by London-based senior underwriter for power and renewables Tom Clifton (pictured) – will integrate underwriting, risk engineering, and claims to provide brokers and clients with tailored insurance solutions. Supporting Clifton is energy manager Jose Luis Ruiz-Poveda in Madrid.

“The renewable energy sector is increasingly a mainstream source of energy, and is growing rapidly,” commented Mike Gosselin, LSM’s chief underwriting officer - specialty. “As the energy landscape changes, so too have the demands of our clients.”

Gosselin said it can offer an integrated service that includes risk engineering capabilities, by leveraging LSM’s existing industry knowledge and technical expertise in onshore renewable energy.

“This service will allow us to work closely with our clients and provide them with a holistic and unique perspective on their exposures, offering guidance and advice on loss prevention and control issues,” he added.

Business will be underwritten from the London office, as well as from regional hubs in Paris, Madrid, and Dubai.
