Patent trends in the clean energy sector


The Clean Energy Patent Growth Index (CEPGI) has recently released its results for the third quarter of 2013. The CEPGI is produced and published by US law firm Heslin Rothenberg and is a quarterly report on clean energy patents granted in the United States. The CEPGI tracks the granting of U.S. patents for the following sub-components: Solar, Wind, Hybrid / Electric Vehicles, Fuel Cells, Hydroelectric, Tidal / Wave, Geothermal, Biomass / Biofuels and Other Clean Renewable Energy, click here to read more.

The latest results show solar has become the leading sector within clean energy for patent grants, overtaking fuel cells, and that most of the growth in solar patents has been driven by small companies.
