R&D and innovation
Between 2000 and 2010, Shanghai Electric Group constantly increased the number of patent and utility model applications. Only in 2009, the number of filed patents decreased. SEC was founded in 2004, but has filed patents and utility rights since 1999. The reason is that a lot of SEC's subsidiaries were established long before 2004.
