Media Advisory: DOE to Announce 10 HPC Projects to Advance U.S. Manufacturing and Energy Technology
February 12, 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 12, 2016) – On Wednesday, February 17, David Danielson, Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), and Mark Johnson, Director of EERE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office, will speak to reporters about the U.S. Department of Energy’s 10 new High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) projects.
The senior officials will unveil new industry partners selected to receive $3 million in funding through this national laboratory-run program that will address key challenges facing U.S. manufacturing. These collaborations will apply modeling, simulation, and data analysis to industrial processes and materials to lower production costs and bring new products to market more quickly.

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab
The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) Computing Sciences organization provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing the Department of Energy's research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world and our universe.
ESnet, the Energy Sciences Network, provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections that link scientists at 40 DOE research sites to each other and to experimental facilities and supercomputing centers around the country. The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) powers the discoveries of 6,000 scientists at national laboratories and universities, including those at Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division (CRD). CRD conducts research and development in mathematical modeling and simulation, algorithm design, data storage, management and analysis, computer system architecture and high-performance software implementation. NERSC and ESnet are DOE Office of Science User Facilities.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory addresses the world's most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab's scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the DOE’s Office of Science.
DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit science.energy.gov.
