December 7th, 2021, 4 pm CET, 10 am EST

The uncertainty regarding the essentiality of declared SEPs is an important topic in the policy debate about FRAND. Different approaches have been proposed to increase transparency about the number of truly essential patents in different patent holders’ portfolios. As assessments of the proportion and number of truly essential patents owned by different patent holders play an important role in FRAND determinations, it is crucial to understand the diversity of existing approaches, and how to properly interpret their results.

Part 3: The Role of Standard Essential Patents for Smart Energy applications

Europe/US: Tuesday December 14th 4pm CET / 10am EDT
Asia: Wednesday December 15th 8am CET

Smart energy refers to the entire value chain from smart and efficient energy generation to energy consumption. The energy sector faces many challenges, many of which can be solved with new standards-enabled connected services and applications. A wave of oncoming smart energy technology could be about to make the worlds electricity infrastructure more efficient, however it relies on standardized technology such as 4G, 5G or Wi-Fi, which are subject to thousands of standard essential patents (SEPs). This has wide-reaching implications for the energy industry implementing these standards as well as for the standards developers and owners of relevant patents and SEPs. Yet many companies in the energy sector have no access to SEPs, which creates legal risks and uncertainty as connectivity standards are fully implemented in existing smart energy systems. Moreover, companies in the energy sector that adopt standards subject to SEPs, have little experience with negotiating a SEP license and limited information about the SEP ownership situation. Understanding the overall SEP landscape is however critical for the smooth adoption of connectivity standard, maintaining profitability, and protecting the capacity to sell new products, components or systems with enough access to third-party patent rights. In this webinar we will discuss the role of SEPs for the smart energy application, provide an overview of the landscape of declared SEPs, pooled SEPs as well as discuss standards development initiatives that are relevant or will become relevant for the energy sector.
