IntelStor has launched a global marketplace and central clearinghouse within the wind industry for intellectual property (IP) and technology to be bought, sold or licensed.
The focus will be on proven technologies for the utility-scale turbine market. There are commitments from multiple companies who have listed over 800 patents for sale or available for license to date. These patents cover almost every aspect of wind turbine technology and operation including blades, controls, tower, gearbox, generator, pitch & yaw systems, logistics / transportation, as well as O&M and even construction related patents. Listings are kept private to maintain confidentiality, but the categories of patents and technology for sale are acknowledged. Interested buyers and sellers must meet stringent criteria for participation, and patent acquirers and licensees are expected to use the IP to cultivate new products and technologies.
