Accelerating innovation and diffusion of renewable energy technologies: technology capabilities, business practices and policy options

565

Published on

There is a need for innovation and industrial upgrade policies to be co-ordinated with renewable energy capacity obligations for Bulgaria and other accession member states to the EU: that was the main message of a presentation by CambridgeIP’s CEO Ilian Iliev at a recent workshop on The Costs and Benefits of Renewables: Biomass organised by the Center for Study of Democracy in Sofia, Bulgaria.

  7. 7. Types of IPRs A modern and complex technology product is protected by different forms of IPRs Patents: ability to prevent others from using your technology e.g. patents around turbine transmission systems Trade secrets: non-disclosed and commercially valuable information e.g. production or installation methods Trademark: protection of the word/symbol denoting the origin of a good Copyright: protecting the form of expression e.g. control software written by/on behalf of company 7 © 2011 Cambridge Intellectual Property Ltd. All rights reserved
  8. 8. IPRs as a way of promoting innovation • IPRs are a state-created mechanism allowing inventors to capture a return on their investment by giving them the rights to decide how their invention will be used • At the heart of IPRs is a trade-off between static efficiency (best use of today’s knowledge) and dynamic efficiency (creating tomorrow’s knowledge) 8 © 2011 Cambridge Intellectual Property Ltd. All rights reserved
  9. 9. Close relation between IPRs and R&D financing • Various studies have shown a relationship between levels of R&D and inventiveness and patenting trends 9 © 2011 Cambridge Intellectual Property Ltd. All rights reserved
  10. 10. How are IPRs used in practice? The IPR mechanism/arrangement used at each part of the technology innovation chain can determine next stage options for technology transfer/diffusion The full range of stakeholders have an influence on how IPRs are used, from investors to competitors to governments Product R&D/commercialis In-house ation Channel Choice of Collabo- ration Services Licensing Licence Spin-off Role of IPRs in Each Part of Innovation Chain Multiple business models and ways of using IPRs, depending on industry history, ? ? ? ? ? ? economics, inherited business models, norms, etc. Investors/Shareholders Value Chain Partners/Collaborators Competitors © 2011 Cambridge Intellectual Property Ltd.
