The substantial portfolio includes Granted Patents and Patent Applications from patent offices around the world including: USA, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, India, Mexico, Denmark, the European Patent Office and the World Patent Office.

SheerWind Inc developed its patented INVELOX technology to increase wind speed to facilitate generation of clean energy in areas where there had previously been insufficient wind-speed to make traditional column-mounted wind turbines spin. The technology was designed to capture and funnel wind to increase the wind-speed and harvest energy from multiple turbines housed safely near the ground, while simultaneously reducing the danger to birds posed by the traditional column-mounted wind turbines.

Doug Berman, Director of Heritage Global Patents & Trademarks, added, "This is an exceptional opportunity for entrepreneurs to either add to their existing Alternative Power technologies or to jump-start their entry into Wind Energy with the benefit of bypassing the time and cost required for research and development as well as the costs of the patent process itself."
