The 2013 seventh annual Juris investment arbitration conference put in issue the special role of international energy projects in the development of investor-state arbitration. It is currently one of the most active sectors of investor-state arbitration. The “facts” of the energy sector therefore are particularly well-developed in international jurisprudence.

The similarities in the applicable law of investment protection between the energy sector and other sectors tend to hide from view what our panelists repeatedly uncovered: it is the facts of energy disputes that significantly set them apart. The concerns of sovereign dominion over national energy production and the protection of foreign investors in the energy sector against stranding large investments served as a key point of departure for discussions.

The four questions that the Conference addressed include:

  • The Energy Sector, Investment Arbitration and the ECT: Carving out a Special Regime?
  • Energy Contracts and BITS – Is it Fair and Equitable to be Under the Umbrella?
  • Mulitparty Investor Disputes in the Energy Sector – Preclusion, Consolidation or Free-For-All?
  • Measure by Measure? Calculating Damages in Energy Disputes
The discussion and debate that followed is provided in this book and sure to be of tremendous value to the international business lawyer, litigation specialist or trade and investment law policy expert.
