Decarbon Discounts

If your inventions address the problem of energy generation or management in a way that helps mitigate climate change, we can offer you a discount for our services. It's our way of showing our commitment to having a positive impact on the environment and local communities.


Several patent offices worldwide operate fast-track schemes for accelerated processing of patent applications relating to energy production, clean technologies and energy efficient technologies. If rapid grant of a patent is desired, we can provide step-by-step guidance through these schemes.

Obtaining a rapid grant of a patent is desirable for investment, licensing and marketing, as well as helping to ward off competition and allowing swift action against any infringing third parties.
