Cleantech and renewables
Over recent years, there has been a significant global growth of products and services that utilise sustainable and renewable energy sources and improve energy efficiency, while reducing natural resource consumption, waste and pollution.
Protecting intellectual property rights is crucial for a business operating in the cleantech and renewables industry in order to gain market share and prevent third party exploitation.
Our attorneys have a wealth of experience in multiple associated disciplines including chemistry, life sciences, electronics, software and engineering, enabling them to advise and assist clients in the cleantech and renewables industry. They can assist with securing, protecting and defending intellectual property rights in numerous technical areas including:
- fuel cells;
- hydroelectric power;
- recycling and waste management;
- reducing pollution and carbon dioxide emissions;
- solar power;
- water and wastewater treatment; and
- wind power.
Our attorneys also assist clients in prosecuting their patent applications through the UK Intellectual Property Office’s ‘Green Channel’. This service allows applicants to request accelerated processing of their patent application if the invention has an environmental benefit.
