Energy technology is an engineering science that deals with technologies for the efficient, safe, environmentally friendly, and economic production, conversion, transport, storage, and use of energy in all its forms. The importance of energy technology is constantly growing, especially to meet the demands of increased efficiency and reduced environmental impact. Energy technology is an interdisciplinary technology and is closely interlinked with a multitude of sciences, such as chemistry, physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, thermodynamics, etc..
Electrical energy technology deals amongst others with the transport and distribution of electrical energy (conventional or renewable) and covers several sub-areas of electrical engineering, such as power electronics, electrical machines, switchgear, energy storage, or smart grids. Due to the broad technical knowledge of our patent attorneys, we can offer comprehensive patent law advice in the interdisciplinary field of energy technology:
