Energy Charter Treaty - Review Your Renewable Energy Investment Structure

On 22 November 2022, the Contracting Parties to the Energy Charter Treaty (“ECT”) failed to adopt the amended and “modernized” text of the ECT. The ECT is a multilateral treaty that has been protecting investments in the energy sector of the ECT Contracting Parties for over two decades. Several European countries (currently Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, and Spain) have announced their intention to leave the ECT altogether.

How may the ECT modernization and withdrawal of its Contracting Parties affect your renewable energy investment? Read more on the modernized text of the ECT and possible implications for renewable energy investors in my recent blog post here.

To help prepare for the potential changes to the ECT text and its membership, you are encouraged to review your renewable energy investment structure to ensure continuous protection of your investments under the existing international investment agreements.

For a limited time only, I am offering to review the structure of existing and contemplated renewable energy investments at a reduced rate.
