Hydrogen power is likely to play a significant role in international commitments to achieving carbon emissions and net zero goals by 2050. This is why governments all over the world, as well as the private sector, are investing heavily in this technology. The growth and success of the hydrogen economy will largely be driven by advancements and innovations in both the core and applications technologies.

This article considers some of the key IP considerations that are relevant.
