IP protection for green technology
Environmentally friendly or ‘green’ technologies are being adopted in almost every industry. This includes increasing efficiencies and capacities in renewables; advances in manufacturing methods and waste disposal; more energy efficient buildings, vehicles and devices; and increasing the efficiency of agriculture. Great strides forward are being made in alternative energy efficiencies, with advances deriving from sources like improved resilience in wave and tidal energy systems, structural innovations in wind turbines and material developments in photovoltaics. Green technologies are also seeing growth in the retail sector, driven by consumer demand. Developments in this sector may be well-established technologies undergoing refinements, or something entirely new — but whatever the innovation, it’s crucial to protect your IP before entering the market in order to maximise your commercial advantage.
