FSR co-hosts the Brussels International Energy Charter Forum

Mobilising Investments For A Sustainable Energy Future

On 12 May 2017, the Florence School of Regulation (FSR), the International Energy Charter, the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), and the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) will jointly host the Brussels International Energy Charter Forum on the topic of Mobilising Investments For A Sustainable Energy Future.

The forum aims to deliver cutting-edge thinking and debate on policy, legal and regulatory aspects concerning the undergoing transition towards a sustainable energy model. The global energy architecture needs to build on stable and transparent frameworks to mobilise huge investment to enable the low-carbon energy transition. From different and complementary angles, the five institutions co-organising the forum participate in the promotion and protection of energy investment and in the analysis and policy dialogue on energy markets.

The first morning session deals with the necessity of stable investment conditions to implement the UNFCCC Paris Agreement and achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals on universal energy access. The second session focuses on best practices in regulatory reform to attract investment while minimising disputes.

The policy-oriented, preventive and ex-ante regulatory presentations of the morning, are complemented in the afternoon with an ex-post legal approach related to dispute settlement. The third session tackles the concept of investment protection standards, which are ultimately interpreted by arbitral tribunals in actual investor-state disputes. The forth and last session reviews the work in progress in investment dispute settlement.
