A new online platform on renewable energy innovation and patents

As described by the IPR Helpdesk:

A new online platform on renewable energy innovation

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in co-operation with the EPO and the International Electrotechnical Commission have launched a new online platform giving access to the world’s largest collection of global renewable energy standards and patent documents. Also known as INSPIRE, the International Standards and Patents in Renewable Energy platform is the first and most complete solution of its kind. Indeed, the patents section contains information on over two million patent documents relating to carbon mitigation technologies from PATSTAT – a patent statistics database and Espacenet – a public online patent search tool. The standards section enables users to search through a database of more than 400 internationally used standards and explains what standards are, how they can be used and why they are important.
