Previous Solar Wars articles have considered whether claims by EU investors against Spain and other EU states under the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) would be affected by the decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in Slovak Republic v Achmea (Case C-284/16). That case held that an arbitration clause in bilateral investment treaty (BIT) between two EU states contravened EU law. The decisions in Masdar Solar & Wind Cooperatief U.A. v Spain (see Solar Wars Part V) and Antin Infrastructure v Spain (see Solar Wars Part VI) indicated that ECT tribunals were taking a consistent line in rejecting the application of Achmea to intra-EU ECT claims. Two recent awards appear to confirm this trend.
