The future of Investor-State disputes in the energy sector: challenges and opportunities

18 May
14:00 - 16:00

The importance of substantial and sustained investment in the energy sector cannot be overstated. A mixed panel composed of arbitrators, counsel, academics and a quantum expert will focus on the current trends and future challenges in the energy sector by addressing and discussing (i) the typical energy disputes between investors and host States, (ii) the recent developments in terms of the modernisation of the Energy Charter Treaty and how it may affect investment disputes, (iii) the impact of the regulatory and environmental aspects, (iv) how losses are quantified in energy disputes (which often involve long and complex projects), and (v) the implications of such changes in international arbitration, in particular in terms of challenges and enforcement aspects.
