Quality Assurance Publications
Innovation is essential for the accelerated deployment of renewable energy technologies (RETs) that will play a key role in addressing issues such as energy security, energy access and climate change.
In line with these goals, it is important for policy-makers to have access to relevant, reliable and up to date information on technology developments. Patent activity is one of the sources of such information. Making patent information more accessible can help to catalyse further innovation of renewable energy technologies.
