Today the HPC for Energy (HPC4E) project released a new white paper on the use of Exascale computers in Oil & Gas, Wind Energy and Biogas Combustion industries.

The use of new Exascale architectures and the corresponding advances in codes to fully exploit new chip capabilities will help address challenges for combustion technologies, wind power generation and hydrocarbon exploration, allowing a transition to greener and more advanced energy systems based on alternative fuels combined with renewable energy technologies.

This project has revealed the synergies between European and Brazilian researchers, and has strengthened the bilateral relationships. From the point of view of the technical results, the project has been a success, having achieved all the planned objectives“, comments José M. Cela, BSC CASE Department Director and the European HPC4E project coordinator.

All the project’s results have also been summarized in a PDF factsheet. The complete outcome of the project will also explained in the workshop “HPC Roadmap for Energy Industry” taking place on Wednesday, January 24 at Barcelona Supercomputing Center. The aim of this event is to explain the scientific results by each partner as well as to find new synergies for future collaborations related to high-performance computing for energy.

The HPC for Energy project, coordinated by Barcelona Supercomputing Center (EU) and COPPE (Brazil), 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: Barcelona Supercomputing Center, CIEMAT, Inria, University of Lancaster (ULANC), Queen Mary University of London, COPPE, LNNC, ITA, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul and Universidade Federal de Pernambuco.
