GAR Live: Singapore will bring together leading arbitrators, private practitioners, funders, expert witnesses, and general counsel in interactive, timely panel sessions, discussing the topics affecting international arbitration in the region, including key local developments, trends and challenges.
Jonathan Lim will speak on a panel titled “Preparing for Energy Transition.”
As countries balance growing energy needs and the need to phase out fossil fuels, the scope for energy disputes only widens. The transition poses a range of challenges, and stakeholders should be prepared to juggle changing regulatory landscapes and new technologies, alongside the energy demands that come from large scale infrastructure developments. This session will navigate the recent trends arising from energy related disputes, including:
- Fossil fuel phase-outs or renewables incentives – what should be our focus as disputes lawyers?
- Disputes arising from an increased demand for resources to generate renewable energy
- Understanding new and changing state regulation in China and elsewhere to avoid disputes
