Department of Energy Announces $3 Million in High Performance Computing Research at National Laboratories
Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to $3 million to connect industry partners with U.S. National Laboratory high–performance computing (HPC) resources that will accelerate the development of breakthrough manufacturing and clean energy technologies. As part of DOE’s latest High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) solicitation, selected teams will apply advanced modeling, simulation, and data analysis to projects that improve manufacturing efficiency and explore new materials for clean energy application.
“Our National Laboratories are home to the most sophisticated high–performance computing technologies in the world,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Kelly Speakes-Backman. “Capable of making one quintillion calculations per second, these supercomputers will arm us with the information we need to reduce carbon emissions across U.S. industries and fight the climate crisis right here at home.”
