This short 3-page note summarizes 20 different TSE patent screens, to assess the pace of energy transition technologies progress. Lithium batteries are most actively researched. Autonomous vehicles and additive manufacturing technologies are accelerating fastest. Wind and solar remain heavily researched, but the technologies are maturing. The steepest deceleration of interest has been in fuel cells and biofuels. It remains interesting to compare the pace of progress within sub-industries. Our full underlying data-file behind this research paper is linked here.
Our top 4 conclusions on the pace of energy transition technologies progress are highlighted in the article sent out to our distribution list here, including which energy technologies are the most actively researched, and which are seeing the biggest acceleration or deceleration; and to compare the pace of progress within sub-industries.
