The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has awarded $2 million in federal funding for seven new high performance computing projects that are part of the “High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) Initiative.”

According to this article, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is involved in two of the seven projects:

  • Gas Technology Institute, Gopher Resource, and ORNL will partner to use high performance computing to increase the productivity of secondary lead furnaces.
  • AK Steel will collaborate with ORNL on thermo-mechanical forming process development to produce tailored strength automotive structural components.
