Significant scientific and technical advances impact the nuclear energy industry, resulting in numerous challenges involving intellectual property (IP) management, licensing, and litigation.
As governments around the world have come together to drive lower carbon emissions and the use of renewable energy, patent legislation regarding nuclear power has lessened constraints on the filing process. Especially as small modular reactors (SMRs) make a stronger presence in the industry, intellectual property is crucial for companies in carrying out the R&D processes to develop new technologies to facilitate the energy transition.
