Clean Technology & Renewable
The development of alternative energy sources has become an extremely important worldwide. Drive to innovate in the field of alternative energy originally stemmed from desires to reduce a dependency on oil, but many technologies are also being developed in order to reduce negative environmental impacts.
Regardless of the motivation, alternative energy technologies have become increasingly valuable, and acquiring protection for your alternative energy innovations is of the utmost importance. IIPTA will counsel you on all issues regarding the protection of your alternative energy innovations.
The USPTO has long recognized the importance of alternative energy and green technologies, even allowing expedited prosecution for certain innovations in the field. Further, these technologies are valuable and patentable worldwide. Notably, Japan was one of the many countries to enter the field of alternative energy early, and the Japanese Patent Office has seen strong patenting activity relating to solar power and to hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Similarly, the European Patent Office has received a large number of applications for wind and solar energy patent applications in recent years.
IIPTA works with a broad range of alternative energy technologies and clean energy.
