Battery patent search & monitoring


Hot cause - accelerate energy storage technology development

  • Why do batteries improve more slowly than other technologies?
  • Batteries and supercapacitors consist of several components that are manufactured by different organizations.



    With increasing energy density, these components exhibit rising interdependencies, which means that only very few material combinations will lead to viable energy storage systems.
  • An accurate understanding of the global patent literature accelerates R&D and improves the market posititioning for new products.
