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.
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 Manufacturing Office (AMO) and the Office of Fossil Energy 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.
Next Generation Additive Manufacturing
Livermore Lab is working with Seurat Technologies to model a faster laser powder bed manufacturing process and bring it to market.
Improved Aluminum Ingot Casting
Livermore Lab is working with Arconic to model aluminum ingot casting and reduce cracking that leads to product rejection.
High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) is sponsored by U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Offices:
