Energy

The energy sector is driven by global environmental and political pressures.

Despite difficult challenges, the energy market continues to expand with the current climate crisis driving innovation across the sector.

Upstream oil and gas companies are diversifying and heavily investing in sustainable and renewable energy solutions, seeing growth in patents across the areas of exploration, production, processing and refining. Developing an IP portfolio targeted to reflect these differences is a challenging exercise for businesses. HGF’s experienced energy team focuses on overriding commercial considerations to seek IP protection where and when appropriate.

HGF’s energy team possesses deep technological and academic know-how covering downhole tools, subsea equipment, downstream processing and the full gambit of renewable energy technologies, as well as experience in commercialising these technologies.
