The Future of Renewable Energy

an international round-table of business, regulatory and legal experts

Is Renewable Energy coming of age or facing a backlash? Is it now mainstream or still an adventure? Should the public still support it and, if so, how? How should it regulate it? What is the role of dispute resolution and of investor protection in this scheme?

These are all questions that itch the energy sector, both in Romania and globally.

The Future of Renewable Energy brings together business leaders, policy makers and leading jurists to debate current thinking about the development of the industry at the crossroad between the investment drive, regulation, public incentives and dispute resolution.

Hosted by the Bucharest International Arbitration Court (BIAC) and the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC)
