For over a year now I’ve had the pleasure of using a beta version of CleanTech PatentEdge, a powerful database of green technology patents and published applications. Now you can use it too!
IP Checkups, the Berkeley patent analytics firm that created CleanTech PatentEdge, recently announced the official launch of the database. The only comprehensive online database focused on the clean tech industry, CleanTech PatentEdge contains more than 1.5 million worldwide patents categorized by different market sectors.
Through its user-friendly interface and analytics portal, CleanTech PatentEdge allows easy access to information on green patent data and trends, including the ability to track real-time progress of patent publications and grants and create custom charts and tables to organize the data.
Matt Rappaport, founder and CEO of IP Checkups, said the database allows its users to keep on the fast-moving developments in green technologies:
CleanTech PatentEdge addresses an unmet need in burgeoning green industries, such as renewable energy, which are growing at breakneck rates. There are daily innovations in solar, wind, and water technologies, to name just a few. CleanTech PatentEdge provides an otherwise unattainable view of an entire industry’s patent developments and competitive landscape in real-time, as patents are filed.
Annual subscriptions to CleanTech PatentEdge begin at $180 a month for individual users and $450 a month for 3-5 users, with other rates and plans available.
