Execution is Key to Survival During Start-Up

As Thomas Friedman writes in "Hot, Flat, and Crowded," the 
need for sustainable, earth-friendly energy sources will 
drive business opportunities and the application of new 
technology in the post-recession era. Venture capitalists 
are still seeking scalable innovations from the most 
promising new ideas.

At the same time, many initiatives are already in various 
stages of development. These ambitious process and product 
development programs are often limited by resource 
availability and time. Progress is hampered by an Edisonian 
trial-and-error discovery process. Clearly, a new approach 
is called for.

ANSYS provides a unique blend of highly-automated 
engineering simulation tools with the expertise to guide 
project implementation on a jump-start service basis. This 
two-part webinar series will focus on two major technology 
domains, namely solar and wind energy. We will share our 
core competencies related to steps in product and process 
development, design exploration and verification, scale-up, 
manufacturing and performance analysis, including service 
life prediction.
