Intellectual Property

The creation, protection and maintenance of the CETO Intellectual Property (IP) are a core business for Carnegie. Carnegie invests significant resources, overseen by our in-house IP Coordinator, ensuring that all novel aspects of the CETO technology are appropriately protected globally.

Carnegie’s CETO Intellectual Property portfolio consists of nine patent families and more than 140 patents and patents pending along with various trademarks.

An Independent Expert’s Report completed by intellectual property specialists, Global IP Services, described the investment made in protecting the CETO intellectual property as having “…created significant IP barriers to entry, and provides Carnegie…with a strong, global capacity to leverage its CETO IP and successfully commercialise this technology…”

Carnegie owns the global Intellectual Property & Development Rights for the CETO technology and will continue to generate and protect new IP as CETO continues to mature. This IP, along with Carnegie’s unique development capability and CETO knowledge and experience, creates a significant competitive advantage which will allow Carnegie to tap into the vast wave energy resource globally.
