The HPC for Energy (HPC4E) project is organizing a workshop entitled HPC Roadmap for Energy Industry. Hosted by INRIA, the event takes place Feb 1 at the Inria Sophia Antipolis – Méditerranée Research Centre.
The event will gather experts on HPC applied to energy production and design, industry key stakeholders and representatives from the European Commission and the Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa (RPN, Brazil).
Energy is one of the current priorities for EU-Brazil cooperation. The main objective is to develop high-performance simulation tools that go beyond the state-of-the-art to help the energy industry respond to both future energy demands and carbon-related environmental issues.
The HPC4E project is coordinated by the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre. The project has been granted €2 million in funding by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. HPC4E brings together European and Brazilian partners that include both companies within the energy sector, such as REPSOL, TOTAL, Iberdrola and PETROBRAS, as well as the following research centres: BSC, CIEMAT, INRIA, University of Lancaster (ULANC), COPPE, LNCC, ITA, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul and Universidade Federal de Pernambuco.
In this video, the HPC for Energy project describes the challenges that our society faces in energy production and consumption and how exascale supercomputing helps to address them.
