In this report, we identified 23 licenses from the IPSCIO Royalty Rates Database related to defense technology. These licenses focus primarily in areas such as personnel equipment, power generation equipment, electronics and communications.
In this report, we identified 89 licenses from the IPSCIO Royalty Rates Database related to wind, solar and biomass renewable energy technology. There were very few licenses in the remaining renewable energy areas of hydrokinetics, hydropower and geothermal. A focus on developing these technologies is considered one important step in combating climate change and reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
In this report, we identified 49 licenses from the IPSCIO Royalty Rates Database related to battery and fuel cell technology. Following is a general industry overview, review of the technology licensed and license benchmark information, including royalty rates and license characteristics. After reviewing the licenses, the line between “battery” and “fuel cell” began to blur since both devices use a chemical reaction to generate electricity. Our research indicates that a battery makes electricity from stored energy and a fuel cell from fuel stored in an external tank. This means a fuel cell will make electricity as long as fuel is supplied, compared to a battery that eventually will exhaust the stored electricity. So the remaining life of the two sources is very different. While batteries can be recharged, fuel cells are expected to supply usable power for a couple of years longer than batteries.
The Environmental Services Industry Report supplies a general industry overview and then focuses on a review of technology licensing and resulting benchmark information, including royalty rates and license characteristics. We identified 115 licenses in the IPSCIO Royalty Rates Database related to environmental technology. These licenses relate to waste remediation and recycling and serve as the basis for our presentation.
This Automotive Industry Report has focused on 64 licenses sourced to actual license contracts. There are also additional industry reports similarly prepared. Also available is a high-level review of 15 different technology areas that has been published for 15 years that includes all contracts and directional information. All these industry reports and licensing information from the US SEC Filing documents or periodicals are easily accessible at our IPSCIO online searchable database.
