HPC4E

About

The HPC4E project aims to apply the new exascale HPC techniques to energy industry simulations, customizing them, and going beyond the state-of-the-art in the required HPC exascale simulations for different energy sources: wind energy production and design, efficient combustion systems for biomass-derived fuels (biogas), and exploration geophysics for hydrocarbon reservoirs.
Goals
1. Apply the new exascale HPC techniques to improve exploration of 3 different energy industries : wind, biomass-derived fuels and geophysics for hydrocarbon reservoirs
2. Efficient use of the future 100 Petaflops and Exaflop systems
3. Benefit the energy sector from mature energy-oriented simulation toolsets
4. Benefit vendors from production-ready demonstrators that justify the need of supercomputers

OBJECTIVES & FOCUS

WIND
  • Design the best possible spatial design for onshore & offshore wind farms
  • Predict energy throughputs with local weather forecasts
  • Enable using larger turbines

BIOMASS

  • Describe performance of biomass fuel blends on practical combustion systems
  • Improve design of combustion engines

GEOPHYSICS

  • Exascale-level computational kernels.
  • Exploration risk reduction through uncertainty quantification.
  • Industry-driven benchmarks for geophysical imaging.
