Hydrogen production by water electrolysis. Patent landscape

12.05.2024

Aenert news. Invention analysisElectrolysis is one of the main technologies for producing green hydrogen. However, to date, hopes for achieving acceptable competitiveness of this technology compared, for example, with steam reforming, have not been justified. The cost of hydrogen produced by electrolysis remains too high for mass production. In addition, another important problem for electrolysis...

Patent activity worldwide in 2022

20.12.2023

Aenert news. Invention analysisTowards the end of this year, WIPO and IP5 Offices published statistical results of patent activity in the world for 2022. After the relatively difficult two previous years, which passed under the sign of Covid, in 2022 political upheavals took over the baton of negativity. Under these conditions, the patent activity of inventors could not remain independent of...
