Virtual Energy Conference Tomorrow

A major theme of Design Impact is how better engineering analysis and design can improve the sustainability of our society. One important way this can be realized is through advancing renewable energy sources, as well as improving energy efficiency. For example, advanced design techniques can help us make wind turbines and solar arrays more effective, as well as bring them online faster. In addition to addressing the resource side of the energy issue, advanced design techniques, such as design optimization, can help engineers develop transportation systems, buildings, and other engineered products that consume far less energy, while still meeting performance demands.

We have an opportunity tomorrow to learn from an impressive array of speakers at the MathWorks Virtual Energy Conference. Anyone can register (free) to watch and listen to the speakers, or to network with other participants. Many of you have probably already heard of or participated in virtual conferences, an emerging trend. If not, the basic idea is to capture many of the benefits of attending a conference in person, but via a virtual environment. You can participate from your home or office computer. I hope to see you at tomorrow’s conference!
