Yesterday we took out a further 5 patents, bringing our total so far to 8. These range from broad-scale arrangements of the entire system to medium-scale arrangements of sub-systems. The further we progress, the more we expect to take out - and the more detailed we expect them to be.
We took out the patents now in order to protect the IP as we apply for EEF (Energy Entrepreneurs Funding competition) from DECC (Department of Energy and Climate Change). The innovation side of DECC are being very supportive, though they can't influence the grant funding side.
