The International Centre for Energy Arbitration is a joint venture between the Centre for Energy Petroleum Mineral Law and Policy at the University of Dundee and the Scottish Arbitration Centre.
Our mission is to research attitudes and trends in dispute resolution in the energy sector, to facilitate debate and promote best practice, and to be a centre of excellence and a resource for those involved in energy dispute resolution whether as party, advisor, or tribunal member.
We also promote Scottish arbitration under the Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010 for energy disputes, Scotland as a place to arbitrate such disputes, and the Scottish Arbitration Centre as an appointing body in ad hoc arbitration.
In 2013/14 we consulted the energy sector and worked with relevant representative bodies to establish current trends and desired requirements in respect of dispute resolution within the industry. This research was brought together in a report, published in 2015. That work was to enable further consideration of the preparation of bespoke energy arbitration rules.
