The High-Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) initiative has opened its fall 2022 solicitation cycle to industry partners interested in collaborating with the Department of Energy (DOE) to address key energy and decarbonization-related challenges.
The sponsors of this solicitation are the HPC4Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) and HPC4Materials (HPC4Mtls) programs, pillars of HPC4EI, which is managed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for DOE.
Industry proposals should be designed to leverage DOE HPC resources and expertise to improve manufacturing processes, address products’ lifecycle energy consumption and increase the efficiency of energy conversion and storage technologies, as well as key challenges in developing, modifying and/or qualifying new or modified materials that perform well in severe or complex environments.
Funding for this solicitation round will come from DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office (AMMTO) and Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM).
Applicants are encouraged to partner with a diverse range of universities, community colleges and non-profit organizations, especially those located in disadvantaged communities, to ensure the equitable use and benefits of national laboratory resources and technologies.
Selected projects will be awarded up to $300,000 to support compute cycles and work performed by national laboratory partners. Industry partners must contribute at least 20% of the total project funding.
To date, the HPC4EI initiative has funded $45 million for 150 public/private HPC partnerships.
