Long-term contracts are of great importance in the world of classical and renewable energies. However, if disputes arise, in the case of long-term contracts and negotiations within the framework of price revisions or other contractual provisions,  agreement between the parties cannot be reached easily and negotiations are usually continued in arbitration or conciliation. This often also applies to project-related cooperation contracts; if delays in project implementation occur or if the framework conditions have changed fundamentally. Disagreements between the parties may have a significant economic impact on the contract.
