How supercomputing can help addressing energy challenges

The HPC for Energy (HPC4E) project presents a short video on the societal challenges faced in energy production and consumption and how exascale supercomputing helps addressing them.

The HPC4E project aims to apply the new exascale High Performance Computing (HPC) techniques to energy industry simulations, customizing them, and going beyond the state-of-the-art in the required HPC exascale simulations for different energy sources: wind energy production and design, efficient combustion systems for biomass-derived fuels (biogas), and exploration geophysics for hydrocarbon reservoirs.

The HPC4E project has been co-funded by H2020 and Brazil, under a specific topic call aimed at the development of state-of-the-art HPC environment that efficiently exploits the HPC resources in both the EU and Brazil and advances the work on HPC applications in domains of common interest.
