DOE Funds Computing Projects for Domestic Manufacturing

DOE Funds Computing Projects for Domestic Manufacturing

The Department of Energy (DOE) will award $4.2 million in funds to support 14 projects that will utilize supercomputing resources from national laboratories to reinforce domestic manufacturing efforts.

Industry researchers will use simulation, modeling and data analysis to help manufacturers enhance material productivity and energy efficiency as part of the High Performance Computing for Manufacturing program, DOE said Friday.

The awardees will secure up to $300 thousand in grants while industry partners are required to contribute 20 percent for their teams' project funding.

Alex Fitzsimmons, deputy assistant secretary for energy efficiency at DOE, said the government has made the usage of high-performance computing resources a priority to potentially address national concerns.
