Find out more about Energy Industry
The need to produce reliable energy at a low cost, combined with growing environmental concerns, has brought science and energy engineering to the global focus. Companies are challenged to develop new energy generation technologies, to improve energy intensity, to reduce energy use and to create new innovative solutions that balance demand, cost and environmental priorities
Applying engineering simulation from the very beginning of product and project development allows for economical ways to evaluate new concepts faster and more frequently than with traditional prototyping and testing methods. Energy-based projects benefit from high-fidelity capabilities, complete multi-disciplinary functionality of simulation software. ANSYS has a leading position in energy and related industries and its solutions are being used in energy production and generation projects - including renewable energy (wind energy, solar energy, fuel cells, hydroelectric, tidal and seas, nuclear power, fossil fuels, for example), as well as energy reduction and efficiency projects. ANSYS engineering simulation for the energy segment expands across product and process design, pollution reduction and control, carbon reduction and separation, improved fuel efficiency, reduced packaging weight, new fuel development and satisfaction energy efficiency and regulatory requirements.

Oil & Gas
World demand for oil and gas calls for higher production
Oil and gas production creates challenges that require advanced technologies to increase output and reduce costs through efficient management. Using simulation in this industry is enabling companies to design, verify and to provide more reliable equipment for drilling, production, transportation, process and refinement at the lowest cost.
Being sustainable is a strategy
Protecting and improving the quality of the environment requires innovative solutions that meet the growing demands for sustainable and environmentally friendly technologies, so companies are working in order to reduce the environmental impacts of producing and distributing energy in a variety of ways. The simulation applies computational methods in order to evaluate new products and concepts, manufacturing processes and power generation, and to create global improvements that optimize energy outputs – minimizing environmental impacts.
Meet higher demands on power generation
Engineering simulation for power generation adds value and helps to significantly reduce the time and cost of designing, optimizing, troubleshooting and repairing equipment, enabling the industry to respond quickly, evaluating new designs and concepts, adapting existing plants, modifying equipment processes, designing industry standards and increasing compliance with environmental standards.
Transform your projects with innovative solutions
From traditional and new resources, renewable energy is playing an increasing role in electricity generation and simulation is essential for companies to develop new renewable energy equipment and to improve the reliability and performance of existing systems, helping to accelerate the development process and to introduce renewable technologies quickly into the market, minimizing the time, money and other resources invested in physical prototypes and testing.
