Breakthrough energy innovation comes in many forms, as we at AirLoom Energy are proving with our revolutionary design of an alternative to the wind turbine. AirLoom Energy is a startup wind energy company housed at the incubator program (WTBC) at the University of Wyoming, home of the Cowboys football team and big, BIG wind. We were recently awarded an SBIR grant from the National Science Foundation to support the prototype development of our novel AirLoom wind power generation technology, a milestone that can be credited in large part to support received through the ANSYS Startup program.

Coming Full Circle in Paris: From COP21 to the ANSYS Dimensions Innovation Conference

paris-at-nightAlmost one year ago, Paris was the stage for the 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) that adopted the first international climate agreement, setting a goal to limit the global temperature rise to no more than 2 degrees C. Now I am pleased to say that on November 15th and 16th this year Paris will also play host to the first ANSYS Dimensions Innovation Conference. Let me explain the connection.

As I discussed in a blog last month, to meet the challenges of the COP21 commitments, only breakthrough energy innovation is going to help customers achieve their sustainability goals, lower operational costs and drive growth by opening new markets for their products. Continue reading

ANSYS in ACTION Demo Series Announced

I would like to tell you about a new weekly webinar series we’re launching called ANSYS in ACTION. Before I do, let me ask you a few questions.

Do you like to see software in action before trying it yourself? Are you curious about how ANSYS software can be used to solve your common applications? Are you willing to take a 20 minute hot beverage break once a week to learn something new?

If you answered yes to these questions, the ANSYS in ACTION webinar series is for you. Beginning October 13th, at 1 pm EDT, application engineers from ANSYS will spend 20 minutes each Thursday showing you how ANSYS software can solve common problems. We are selecting applications that a large number of engineers face and showing them our best and easiest to use simulation solution, the solution that will produce the results they need to make good decisions fastest, for each one.
