Green Technologies – Patenting Trends and Technology Development
The UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26) is fast approaching and will bring politicians together to accelerate action towards achieving the goals of The Paris Agreement. However, it is the development of new green technologies (greentech) that is key to mitigating the effects of climate change. In recent years, there has been a dramatic growth of greentech with multi-national companies now leading its development. What were once substantially only oil companies are increasingly energy companies with green energy generation projects ranging from wind farms to hydropower. The rise of greentech is clearly demonstrated by the increasing number of patents filed in this field. In this webinar, we will look into the patenting trends in greentech, discuss examples of how technology developments have been made and patented, and discuss procedural aspects of greentech patenting.
