Our modern world relies on the continuous generation and distribution of energy. Maintaining a sustainable future-proof supply of energy is one of the biggest global challenges that we face. We have already begun to respond to this challenge by developing solutions to improve the reliability, efficiency and safety of the production and supply of energy and mitigate the negative effects of the environment on the sector.
These innovations have disrupted the energy sector as our reliance on traditional fossil fuel has decreased and more of our energy is generated by low carbon sources. However, to meet the UK government’s target of cutting greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, the energy sector as a whole will have to adapt and innovate. As companies work to find solutions to these challenges, intellectual property will be important in protecting valuable innovations.
At Wilson Gunn, our patent attorneys have experience working with university researchers, traditional fossil fuel companies, renewable energy companies and their supply chains. We have sought patent protection relating to a range of different technologies including:
We have expertise in accelerated examination and grant of energy patents under the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) “Green Channel” scheme.
We are also able to advise companies in the sector on other intellectual property issues including trade marks, designs and licensing.
