PARIS ARBITRATION WEEK – HYDROGEN: RISK, OPPORTUNITIES AND POTENTIAL DISPUTES

On September 21, 2021, Shearman & Sterling’s Global International Arbitration Practice Group Leader Alex Bevan moderated a webinar titled “Hydrogen: Risks, Opportunities and Potential Disputes.” The session was organized by Shearman & Sterling in the context of Paris Arbitration Week 2021.

The event brought together Jorgo Chatzimarkakis, CEO of Hydrogen Europe; industry expert Bernd Heid, Senior Partner and Global Hydrogen Lead at McKinsey; and Dr. Catherine Banet, Associate Professor in Energy Law at University of Oslo, to discuss and analyze the key regulatory, technological and economic challenges confronting the generation, storage, transmission and utilization of hydrogen. Also discussed was the role that arbitration may play in resolving any disputes that may arise along the road to net zero.

Alex Bevan has acted as counsel in numerous complex international arbitration proceedings in the energy sector, and is widely considered as a leading practitioner for such disputes. He is a member of the Campaign for Greener Arbitrations and coordinates the firm’s partnership with the Net Zero Lawyers Alliance. Alex is also a member of Shearman & Sterling’s Global Hydrogen Industry Team.
