A recent study from Frost & Sullivan finds that regulatory pressures from government authorities such as the Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency are stimulating the adoption of fuel cell technologies. The goal of that pressure is to ensure reduced emissions and encourage the conversion to alternative fuels. The research also finds that initiatives such as the California Fuel Cell Partnership are also likely to usher in the use of fuel cells in commercial vehicles much earlier than expected.
Fuel cells help reduce the dependence on fossil fuel by using hydrogen. These energy-efficient devices have the ability to reduce noxious emissions considerably. Frost & Sullivan analysts believe government pressure will speed the development of fuel cell technology, thus making this alternative more practical for the auto industry sooner than auto industry experts expect.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
