The High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) initiative will hold a special webinar on Oct. 7 to celebrate Manufacturing Day and provide a forum for industry experts and Department of Energy (DOE) scientists to discuss how HPC can help combat climate change and improve energy efficiency.

The virtual event begins at 8 a.m. PDT and brings together panelists and speakers from industry and DOE to explore topics including decarbonization of industrial processes, carbon utilization, concentrated solar energy and research topics in using hydrogen fuel mixtures in gas turbines and internal combustion engines.

Featured speakers will be Joe Cresko, chief engineer and strategic analysis lead in DOE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office, who will discuss DOE’s Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap; Amishi Claros, Carbon Conversion R&D program manager in DOE’s Fossil Energy and Carbon Management Office, who will highlight DOE’s carbon utilization needs; and Avi Shultz, program manager in DOE’s Solar Energy Technologies Office, who will address modeling and simulation in concentrating solar-thermal power.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's (LLNL) Robin Miles, director of HPC4EI, will emcee the event, followed by an overview of the initiative by LLNL computational physicist and HPC4EI project manager Aaron Fisher.

The webinar is free and open to the public. To register or find out more, visit the web.
