High-Performance Computing Systems and Operations

NREL operates high-performance computing (HPC) systems dedicated to advancing energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.


NREL's HPC capabilities include:

  • High-Performance Computing Systems

    We operate systems with thousands to hundreds of thousands of processing cores, very high-performance networks, and thousands of gigabytes of data storage space for hosting the models and simulations of many researchers and engineers.

  • Storage Systems

    We manage storage systems to enable the integration of complex and large-volume experiments with HPC resources.

  • User Operations

    We manage the process of allocating portions of the computational infrastructure to projects, create and maintain user accounts, and provide assistance to help users utilize the computational capabilities.
