NERSC seeks industry partners for collaborative research


26 Jan 2015 Berkeley - The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has launched a private sector partnership programme (PSP) to make its computing capabilities available to industry partners working in key technology areas. Led by David Skinner, NERSC's Strategic Partnerships Lead, the PSP is intended to give commercial technology developers working in energy, advanced manufacturing, renewable energy sources and transportation access to NERSC's supercomputers, customer support and data management expertise. Participating companies will be able to use these resources for modelling, simulation and data analysis to aid in product design, development, quality control and data analytics.

"NERSC is interested in working with companies developing technologies that support DOE missions", David Skinner stated. "Partners will also be able to work directly with NERSC's computing experts, a very sought after NERSC resource", he added.

Being located in the San Francisco Bay Area gives NERSC easy access to one of the most prolific technology development areas in the country: Silicon Valley.

"We would like to leverage local opportunities and engage significantly with Silicon Valley industries", David Skinner stated.

One Bay Area company already taking advantage of the new programme is QuantumScape, a San Jose-based start-up that is commercializing technology licensed from Stanford to create batteries that are energy-dense and safer than standard lithium ion batteries. Volkswagen recently took a five percent stake in QuantumScape and plans to invest in battery technology as a way to boost the range of electric cars and compete with companies like Tesla Motors, according to news reports. QuantumScape has an initial allocation of 600,000 supercomputing hours at NERSC.

"We have had industry users at NERSC for many years, but most of the principal investigators (PIs) are lab or academia based", David Skinner stated. "We are now encouraging PIs who are industry-based to come work with NERSC. This will allow deeper participation by industry and give NERSC deeper participation in the technology transfer process."
