Call for HPC for Energy Innovation proposals


The U.S. Department of Energy's High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation Initiative has issued its first joint solicitation for the High Performance Computing for Manufacturing Programme and the High Performance Computing for Materials Programme.
14 Nov 2018 Livermore - The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) Initiative has issued its first joint solicitation for the High Performance Computing for Manufacturing Programme(HPC4Mfg) and the High Performance Computing for Materials Programme (HPC4Mtls).

The call for proposals seeks American companies interested in collaborating with DOE's national laboratories on one-year projects to apply high-performance computing (HPC) modelling, simulation and data analysis to key challenges in U.S. manufacturing and material development. Selected industry partners will be granted access to the national labs' HPC facilities and expertise. Projects will be awarded up to $300,000 to support compute cycles and work performed by the national lab partners.

"This first joint announcement between HPC4Manufacturing and HPC4Materials is evidence of growing interest in the programme and will allow greater flexibility in matching proposed work to sponsors interested in funding that effort", stated Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's Robin Miles, interim director of the HPC4Mfg and HPC4Mtls programmes.

The solicitation, the seventh for the HPC4Mfg Programme and the second for the HPC4Mtls Programme, is being issued on behalf of DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Advanced Manufacturing Office, Vehicle Technologies Office and Fuel Cell Technologies Office and Office of Fossil Energy. To date, DOE has awarded nearly $21 million for 69 projects under the two combined programmes. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory heads the HPC4EI programme, partnering with the Argonne, Lawrence Berkeley, Los Alamos, Oak Ridge, Pacific Northwest and Sandia national laboratories, as well as the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and National Energy Technology Laboratory.

For consideration, proposals must require HPC modelling and simulation to overcome manufacturing process and material development challenges and demonstrate a possible impact to energy efficiency and/or increased productivity, with a potential for broad national impact.

Eligibility is limited to U.S. manufacturers of commercial products and the organisations that support them. All DOE national laboratories are eligible to participate. The HPC4EI (HPC4Mfg/HPC4Mtls) Programme anticipates making multiple awards, subject to funding availability. Industry partners must contribute at least 20 percent of the DOE funding for projects.
