According to this report, the UK patent office has launched a new data base cataloguing all the patent applications that are being processed through the fast track channel for clean and sustainable (or cleantech) applications.

Under the fast-track scheme it can take as little as nine months to get a patent granted, compared with the current average time of two-to-three years.

The data base is at this link.  Basic bibliographic information can be searched, such as owner and title.  It appears that around 100 applications have entered the fast track channel – much less than I would have thought.
