IEA and EPO to encourage Welsh sustainable food packaging hub gets £2m: The International Energy Agency (IEA) and the European Patent Office (EPO) have united to highlight and promote new innovations in sustainable energy technologies.

They have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on bilateral co-operation and during the next three years, will publish a series of joint studies to inform policymakers and the public concerning technology trends in spaces critical for the climate change mitigation and energy transition.

Over the past decade, patenting activity in these technologies grew four times faster than the average of all technologies as well as features much more technological progress in electricity storage will be required in the future to meet the demands of the energy transition as their latest report informs.

Expertise in the domains of energy technology and patent information will be provided by the two organisations.

António Campinos, EPO President, expressed: “The EPO’s patent classification scheme for climate change mitigation and adaptation technologies has become a widely-used standard for monitoring progress in green technologies around the world.

“Drawing on the IEA’s unparalleled expertise in the field of energy enables us to go one step further. I am convinced that our co-operation will help innovators in the sector get ahead of the technology curve. It will provide decision-makers with high-quality data and analysis on innovative solutions to meeting the clean energy needs of industry and society as a whole.”
