BUCHAREST 
ARBITRATION DAYS 2022

Timely Perspectives on 
Energy Disputes and 
Their Resolution Mechanism

 Panels 
  Speakers  

 Topics

To be Confirmed Soon

In 2020, more than 15% of ICC’s caseload was represented by energy disputes. 
42% of ICSID arbitrations relate to oil, gas, mining, electric power, and other energy claims. 

The number of Energy Charter Treaty cases continues to grow, from 2 in 2001 to a total of 145 in 2021, most of them concerning renewable energy claims.

The panels will address topics related to energy projects and investment disputes, with focus on infrastructure and energy projects; arbitration as a suitable dispute resolution mechanism for energy disputes; regional approaches 
to energy projects and dispute settlement, with focus 
on the EU energy market; the Energy Charter Treaty and 
its modernization process etc.

This is a word of many meanings, 
and while we will focus the discussion 
on the tangible  and most relevant 

one for dispute resolution, 
i.e. from conventional, fossil based energy  

to renewable energy, we invite our participants 
to gather and use their ‘energy’ for informative discussions, lively sessions, social gatherings 
and initiatives for a better future.

The keyword of the 2022 edition of BARD is 

energy
