Project Description

This project provides the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) with supercomputing time, technical and software support, and training to carry out its on-going Computational Energy Science and Virtual Demonstration Program. Requirements include an archiving system that must be available to store the data that will be generated and three-dimensional visualization capability to aid in analyzing simulation results. The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC), a Research Center of Carnegie Mellon University, operates one of the leading supercomputing centers in the nation as well as a nationally recognized Internet and Internet2 point of presence and regional network aggregation capability that can satisfy NETL's requirements for supercomputing time, technical and software support, training, and outreach and coordination support. PSC maintains an interagency agreement with the National Science Foundation.

Project Benefits

This project will provide NETL with supercomputing time, technical and software support, and training to carryout its on-going Computational Energy Science and Virtual Demonstration Program. As a partner in the Super Computing Science Consortium, NETL supports the advancement of energy and environment technologies through the application of high performance computing and communications among its other regional partners.
