Oak Ridge Lab’s Simulation Tool Creates Digital Twin of Buildings

August 11, 2021 — A new tool that simulates the energy profile of every building in America will give homeowners, utilities and companies a quick way to determine energy use and cost-effective retrofits that can reduce energy and carbon emissions. Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a modeling program […]

The Whole World Is Watching: ORNL’s Bernholdt & Programming Environment Team Prepare for Frontier and Exascale

The world’s fastest supercomputer comes with some assembly required. Frontier, the nation’s first exascale computing system, won’t come together as a whole until all pieces arrive at the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory to be installed—with the eyes of the world watching—on the data center floor inside the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF). Once those components operate in harmony as advertised, David Bernholdt and his team can take time for a quick bow—and then get back to work.

How DOE Scientists Disrupted COVID-19

In early 2020, when the novel coronavirus was gaining momentum but had not yet been named a pandemic, computational chemist Marti Head of Oak Ridge National Laboratory – along with scientists and researchers around the globe – abruptly switched her focus to the fight against COVID-19. The world was struggling to understand this new virus known as severe acute […]
