GREEN and SUSTAINABLE
Strong Roots in Green IP
The Importance of Green Technology
We are delighted to be immersed in green IP — helping entrepreneurs and startups patent their product and ideas in the flourishing sustainable technology marketplace.
The world is embracing the genius of “Ecopreneurs” as a ray of light and hope for this environmentally tattered world. What an opportunity green technology application represents… the chance to monitor and conserve environmental resources, clear the air, level the mountains of toxic waste with innovations in green chemistry, sustain life in our oceans, rid the coral reefs of grief, steer drivers to battery-powered vehicles.
Green Patents are Currently Prolific
As a business consultant for startups and other entrepreneurs, we know the green patent engine is humming. In 2014, the USPTO granted the most number of green patents it has ever granted in a single year. Most were solar power patents. Fuel cells came next, and then wind turbine patents and electric/hybrid vehicles. Bottom line, most venture capital has been going to renewable power manufacturing and energy optimization. Though much more needs to be done and we could use a more aggressive pace, the U.S. is leading the green charge and has granted the greenest patents compared to other countries. Globally, U.S.-based companies have received a good majority of the capital invested in clean tech.
