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

High performance computing plays a critical role in scientific discovery. Researchers increasingly rely on advances in computer science, mathematics, computational science, data science, and large-scale computing and networking to increase our understanding of ourselves, our planet, and our universe. Berkeley Lab’s Computing Sciences Area researches, develops, and deploys new foundations, tools, and technologies to meet these needs and to advance research across a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 16 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’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 energy.gov/science.
