Investment Dispute Settlement Cases

As of 3 August 2021, the Secretariat is aware of 142 investment arbitration cases instituted under the Energy Charter Treaty (sometimes invoked together with a bilateral investment treaty). A full list with information is available here.

Since parties to an investment arbitration under Article 26 ECT are not obliged to notify the Secretariat of the existence or substance of their dispute, some awards (and even the existence of some proceedings) remain confidential. The Secretariat compiles information (which cannot be considered as exhaustive) from delegates and public sources (including specialised reporting services such as Global Arbitration Review (GAR), Investment Arbitration Reporter (IAReporter) and ItaLaw). The Secretariat assumes no responsibility for eventual errors or omissions in these data and welcomes any additional information or clarification on specific cases (at or using the online contact form).
