European Commisision's projectHPC4E - HPC for Energy (EC-H2020-689772)
During the last years, High Performance Computing (HPC) resources have undergone a dramatic transformation, with an explosion on the available parallelism and the use of special purpose processors. There are international initiatives focusing on redesigning hardware and software in order to achieve the Exaflop capability. With this aim, the HPC4E project is applying the new exascale HPC techniques to energy industry simulations, customizing them if necessary, and going beyond the state-of-the-art in the required HPC exascale simulations for different energy sources that are the present and the future of energy: wind energy production and design, efficient combustion systems for biomass-derived fuels (biogas), and exploration geophysics for hydrocarbon reservoirs. HPC4E joins efforts of several institutions settled in Brazil and Europe.
