ns for 2013: What do the Experts Think Will Happen in the Key
CleanTech Markets in the New Year

Presenter:


Awaiting final verification

Presiding:


Ron Epperson, Chair


Digital Content (Michael Craner)


Brings these suggestions to the committees
:

Larry
Goldstein would be willing to speak about his new book (due out May) on "Good Patents" and
subtopics anytime after May.



Patent quality, patent valuation, patent pools, FRAND licensing, etc., are things I can talk about.




-

Some of the legal issues in the
book, such as indirect liability and the

Akamai

case, would also be
good topics.




-

Litigation in court versus ITC litigation.



-

The ETSI IPR policy;



-

True Fundamental Analysis (that is, review by a skilled human evaluator) versus Proxy Fundamental
Analysis (that is, automated review), and in particular, factors relevant for a good Proxy Fundamental
Analysis.

For clean tech:
Trend / Speaker



Synthetic photosynthesis breakthrough by MIT / Speaker;

Dan Nocera (now with Harvard and
Sun Catalytix) (while

not as disruptive as first I thought, this speaker would likely be able to
cover this entire field in a very interesting way:

Reformulators
-

seems to be alot of research on reformulation of natural gas, biogas, and
related to hydrogen for fuel cell use.

Typical byproduct is carbon black that may be used as raw



material for carbon nanotube
constrution.

Seems to tie in with our recycling discussion of
carbon fiber and related materials as
well.:

Flywheels
-

breakthroughs in Tribology (low friction bearing science), carbon fiber (again!) and
nanotube, and the manufacture of motors/generators that do not require any use of magnets or
rare earth elements has seen a resurgence of interest in

flywheels for demand management,
backup, solar/wind grid tie, and industrial regenerative braking applications.

They ar
e also being considered
for micro

grid management solutions (which leads to the next topic)...

distributed backup
-

solutions for the Sandy scenario
