How the HPC4EI Program Works
Program Basics and Cost Sharing
The program pays labs up to $300K for industry access to
HPC resources and expertise; industry pays at least 20%
of project costs (cash or in-kind).
During a semiannual solicitation process, companies may
submit two-page concept papers describing ideas for projects
of up to one year duration.
Lab Principal Investigator
If a concept is accepted, a DOE National Laboratory principal investigator is assigned to help the company develop a full proposal.
• Advances the State of the Art in the Industrial Sector
• Technical Feasibility
• Relevance to HPC
• Impact, including Life-cycle Energy Impact
Following proposal approval, partnering DOE National Laboratory provides the company with a Short Form Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) to initiate the project.

Summer 2023 Solicitation
The High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) is the umbrella initiative for the High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) Program and High Performance Computing for Materials (HPC4Mtls) Program.
Through support from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office (AMMTO), Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office (IEDO), and the Office of Fossil Energy Carbon Management (FECM), the selected industry partners are granted access to high performance computing (HPC) facilities and world-class scientists at Department of Energy’s National Laboratories. Through the initiative, our Nation’s world-class supercomputers are helping manufacturers achieve significant energy and cost savings, improve product performance, expand their markets, and grow the economy.
Livermore Lab is working with Materials Sciences, LLC to deploy topology optimization, additive manufacturing, machine learning, and utlra-high-powered computers to optimize exchanger physics and slash compressor energy consumption by 30%.
Gas Turbines and HPC
Argonne National Laboratory and Raytheon Technologies Research Center partnered through HPC4Mfg to develop data-driven approaches for optimizing gas turbine film-cooling designs while reducing turbine cooling air—thereby improving engine efficiency without sacrificing component durability.
High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) is sponsored by U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Offices:
