Supercomputing Drives Wind Power Efficiency

Oct 9, 2014 |

Wind power is is on track to achieve cost parity with fossil fuels thanks in part to the open-source software tool Simulator for Wind Farm Applications (SOWFA) being developed at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado. “Wind energy is blowing away skeptics,” according to a recent NREL article. “It’s so close to achieving Read more…

Modernizing the Energy Grid with HPC

Jul 8, 2014 |

HPC and its twin big data are playing an increasing role in transforming the energy industry and the nation’s electrical grid and nowhere is this more apparent than at the Energy Department’s Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF). Located on the campus of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado, the ESIF’s HPC datacenter Read more…

HP Targets HPC with New Approach to Water Cooling

Jun 10, 2014 |

HP has announced a new family of high performance computing systems that target a balance between high density, energy efficiency, and raw performance. The line, called “HP Apollo” is divided in half for key workloads and needs, with the air-cooled Apollo 6000 system aimed at enterprise users and the liquid-cooled Apollo 8000 focused on large-scale Read more…

Energy Secretary Dr. Ernest Moniz and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Director Arvizu have unveiled the DOE’s newest supercomputer, Peregrine. This innovative liquid-cooled supercomputer is housed at NREL’s Energy Systems Integration Facility in Golden, Colorado.

Kraken Chews on Gribble Data for Industrial Enzyme Research

Jun 25, 2013 |

A diminutive marine crustacean called the Gribble landed on the biofuel industry’s radar for its unique ability to digest wood in salty conditions. Now, researchers in the US and the UK are putting the University of Tennessee’s Kraken supercomputer to work modeling an enzyme in the Gribble’s gut, which could unlock the key to developing better industrial enzymes in the future.

NREL’s Supercomputer Debuts New Technology

Mar 13, 2013 |

<img src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/NREL_logo222222222.jpg” alt=”” width=”95″ height=”51″ />The DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has just completed construction on a state-of-the-art datacenter in preparation for a brand new supercomputer. The high-efficiency 1-petaflops system features the latest servers from HP, including a proprietary direct-to-chip cooling system. NREL has already taken delivery of an initial 200-teraflops machine, and expects the system to reach full capacity this summer.

HP, Intel Score Petaflop Supercomputer at DOE Lab
