System Resource Allocations

To use NREL’s high-performance computing (HPC) resources, you must have access to an allocation for your research project.

An allocation is a portion of the HPC data center resources planned for a particular research project's use. Allocated resources include:

  • Compute hours on NREL HPC Systems including Peregrine and Eagle
  • Storage space (in terabytes) on Peregrine, Eagle, and Gyrfalcon.

Allocations are principally done in response to an annual call for allocation requests, which are due mid-June each year.
