"Green Hydrogen Patents: Prior Art Review-

and Recommendations for New Patents"



Registration Form Author Declaration Form


With the revolution and application of new-age technology such as renewable energy, AI, IOT, and electric vehicles, etc. Power demand dynamics have substantially changed. At the same time, demand for climate change mitigation has increased. This is the primary focus around the world right now, in addition to strengthening climate targets and demanding net-zero by 2045. When it comes to decarbonizing all industries, green hydrogen is the missing link. If developed, hydrogen could replace fossil fuels as the energy source for a green global economy. Hydrogen has appeared a promising climate-neutral energy carrier for achieving this goal in a sustainable way. This book presents systems perspectives on long-term programs that use green hydrogen to replace and rethink carbon-intensive fossil energy systems. Novel solutions based on green hydrogen and carbon neutral raw materials will be needed to widely use green hydrogen as fuel and feedstock and create hydrogen markets. This book discusses the current patents and system-level solutions needed to make green hydrogen a viable and significant part of future energy systems.


Key themes of the book: (Focus on reviewing patents)

  • A state-of-the-art comparison of green hydrogen production technologies
  • Green Hydrogen storage, transmission, and distribution.
  • Green Hydrogen's current and potential industrial applications.
  • Design of Electrolyze and its manufacturers Markets
  • Application of Green Hydrogen in buildings, transport, and power.
  • Integrated system of Renewable energy, Solar-Wind-Hydrogen Storage
  • Cost effective or low-cost large-scale production of Hydrogen

Chapter Review guidelines


  • Understanding Prior Art: Prior art refers to any information that has been published, sold or otherwise made available to the public before the patent application is filed. This includes publications, patents, products, public demonstrations and other information that is available to the public.
  • Researching Prior Art: To write prior art in a patent application, it is important to conduct thorough research of relevant prior art. This can be done using databases such as the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the European Patent Office (EPO), and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) among others.
  • Identifying Relevant Prior Art: Once the research has been completed, it is important to identify which pieces of prior art are relevant to the invention. This can be done by reviewing the invention’s claims, specifications and drawings and comparing them to the prior art.
  • Organizing Prior Art: Once relevant prior art has been identified, it is important to organize it in a manner that is easy to understand. This can be done by creating a table or chart that summarizes the information, including the title, date, author, and relevance to the invention.
  • Understanding the Technicalities: It is important to have a good understanding of the technicalities involved in the field of engineering. This will help in writing a detailed and accurate description of the prior art.
  • Writing the Prior Art Section: The prior art section of a patent application should be written in a clear and concise manner. It should provide a summary of the relevant prior art and describe the similarities and differences between the invention and the prior art.
  • Formatting the Prior Art Section: The prior art section should be formatted in a professional manner and include appropriate headings, subheadings, and numbered lists.
  • Relying on References: In writing the prior art section of a patent application, it is important to rely on references to authors. This provides credibility to the prior art and demonstrates that the information has been thoroughly researched.
