Energy Related Arbitration Practitioners

Our Chapters

ENERAP is a worldwide forum that addresses the particularities of energy related arbitration proceedings. We promote this forum locally, with each of our Chapters; and globally, through the interaction among our Chapters. Thus, ENERAP works with a cellular structure, where all Chapters are connected to each other facilitating the discussions and creation of different events (e.g. conferences, round tables, networking events, and publications).


Each Chapter is semi-independent for self-governance and is led by an Executive Committee. In this early stage of ENERAP’s life, the Founders of each Chapter are also the members of the Executive Committee of their respective Chapter. Aligned with our desire for diversity, the term of the Executive Committee is of two years with the possibility of submitting a candidacy for renewal.


ENERAP has 57 Chapters, covering countries from Africa, America, Asia, Australia/Oceania, and Europe.

Meet the members of the executive committees of our Chapters for the period 2021-2023:
