Handbook of European HPC projects


Energy-oriented Centre of Excellence for Exascale HPC applications

EoCoE-III is anchored both in the High Performance Computing (HPC) community and in the energy field.

The project will demonstrate the benefit of HPC for the net-zero energy transition for research institutes and also for key industry in the energy sector. The EoCoE-III will draw the experience of two successful previous projects EoCoE-I and EoCoE-II, where a set of diverse computer applications from four energy domains achieved significant efficiency gains thanks to its multidisciplinary expertise in applied mathematics and supercomputing.

During this third round, EoCoE-III will channel its efforts into 5 exascale lighthouse applications covering the key domains of Energy Materials, Water, Wind and Fusion.

The multidisciplinary effort of the consortium partners will harness innovations in computer science and mathematical algorithms within a tightly integrated co-design approach to overcome performance bottlenecks, to deploy the lighthouse applications on the coming European exascale infrastructure and to anticipate future HPC hardware developments.

New modelling capabilities will be created at unprecedented scale, demonstrating the potential benefits to the energy industry, such as accelerated design of photovoltaic devices, high-resolution wind farm modelling over complex terrains and quantitative understanding of plasma core-edge interactions in ITER-scale tokamaks. These lighthouse applications will provide a high-visibility platform for high-performance computational energy science, cross-fertilized through close working connections to the EERA consortium.
