Renewable energy

Our renewable energy department handles patent and utility model applications and represents you in both opposition and revocation and infringement proceedings, particularly in the following technical fields:

  • Solar technology
  • Wind power
  • Hydropower
  • Renewable resources
  • Geothermal energy

Right from the beginning we assist you in protecting your innovations, starting with initial consultation concerning an application strategy that is tailored to your needs.

This technical field has witnessed a strong increase in the number of patent applications in recent years.  We are aware that a successful patent strategy, especially in this field, demands an interdisciplinary approach with our in-house specialists in the fields of electrical engineering, chemistry and physics working closely together.

Thanks to our close co-operation with American and Asian law firms, we have the expertise to secure optimum protection for your ideas and innovations in those markets, too.  For example, even when preparing national applications, we make sure that the legal requirements of other countries are considered as well so that comprehensive protection in the various countries is ensured.  At the time, this allows us to conduct examination procedures with the patent offices of other countries in a cost-efficient manner.
