The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) recently announced the launch of a new Green Energy Category as part of their Incentive Program. The program is designed to encourage innovation and development of green technologies and energy solutions, and the new category is specifically aimed at recognizing and incentivizing inventors and businesses that are working on solutions to combat climate change and reduce carbon emissions.
The USPTO is the federal agency responsible for granting patents and trademarks to inventors and businesses. The Incentive Program is one of their initiatives to support and promote innovation by offering various benefits to patent applicants who meet certain criteria. These benefits include expedited examination, reduced fees, and more.
