Presented by Young ITA

As the energy transition gains momentum and rising levels of investment are made in renewable energy projects, arbitration is well-positioned to remain the mechanism of choice for the resolution of disputes in the energy sector.   What particular challenges do renewable energy-related claims bring in commercial and investment arbitration, and what can we expect to see in the future?      

In this webinar, the panel will explore the economics of the current energy transition and renewable energy projects; the evolving regulatory framework for renewable energy; and the types of disputes that have been arising, and are likely to arise in the future in commercial and investment arbitration. This event is jointly-hosted by the UK and Asia branches of Young ITA, and features a diverse panel from across both regions, with live Q&A.

#YoungITATalks is a series of local events presented around the world, featuring talks, workshops or interviews that cover a wide range of subjects relating to arbitration.
