March 4, 2022 — The High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) will host a virtual event, “Focus on Materials,” on April 8, 2022 at 8 am Pacific Time. Speaker profiles and the agenda can be found here.

The HPC4EI program, comprised of the pillars, High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg), and High Performance Computing for Materials (HPC4Mtls), has funded over 140 projects since its inception in 2015. The program is sponsored by the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewables (EERE) and the Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM). Partnering with DOE National Laboratories, US industry utilize the high performance computing and world-class computational expertise of the National Laboratories to reduce national energy consumption.

Materials enable many of the new energy and carbon reducing technologies. High temperature, corrosive resistant materials enable higher temperature, higher efficiency engines which save fuel in transportation and electricity generation. New materials enable higher energy density, safer batteries for transportation and grid energy storage. New materials will aid in the capture and sequestration of carbon on the road to a sustainable energy future. New material design is enabled by high performance computing to predict material performance in advance of the expensive experimental effort needed to test new material formulations. This event will feature discussions from DOE National Laboratory computational scientists leading efforts on computational material development. They will discuss the state of computational material design and show how they are working directly with industry to implement these techniques to advance US innovation in material development.
