Data Sets on the Eagle System

NREL's high-performance computing system, Eagle, provides fast, parallel access to high-value renewable energy resource data sets stored on the Lustre filesystem.

These data are stored with documentation under /datasets/ and are supported with software modules. Due to the very large size of these data resources, this is a unique resource available only at NREL.
