米国のクリーンエネルギー特許推移 (CEPGI) 、第四期 in 2012

Fuel Cell, solar, wind, hybrid/electric, biofuels分野の特許取得数が上昇した。
米国が世界をリードしており、またカリフォルニアがニューヨークを抜いた (特許取得数で)。

ALBANY, NY—Heslin Rothenberg Farley & Mesiti P.C. is pleased to announce the 2012 year end, and 4th quarter, results for the Clean Energy Patent Growth Index (CEPGI) by the firm’s Cleantech Group.

The CEPGI tracks the granting of patents in the Clean Energy sector and monitors important technological breakthroughs in this field.
Victor Cardona, Co-chair of the firm’s Cleantech Group stated,
“we are pleased to announce the results for the GEPGI which reveal Clean Energy Patents jumped 30 percent to hit an all time high in 2012, up over 700 patents relative to 2011.
Toyota took the yearly Clean Energy Patent Crown from GE in 2012 while also leading the Fuel Cell and Hybrid/Electric vehicle sectors.
U.S. patent owners hold more U.S. patents than any other individual country but less than the combination of all the other countries.
Also, solar and wind patents continued their rise with solar patents beginning to contend with fuel cell patents for the lead sector in clean energy patents.”

The CEPGI provides an indication of the trend of innovative activity in the Clean Energy sector since 2002 in the U.S., along with Leading Patent Owners and Leading Country and State information.
Results through the fourth quarter of 2012 reveal the CEPGI for 2012 to be at its highest level ever at 3061 granted patents, jumping 730 patents.
