NREL has issued its annual open call for requests to use the lab's high-performance computing (HPC) resources. NREL provides HPC and related capabilities to support the mission of the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). Research and development projects that are funded by EERE offices or aligned with the EERE mission are eligible to use these resources.

On behalf of EERE, NREL coordinates the allocation of its HPC resources each fiscal year. For fiscal year 2017 (FY17), the allocation period runs November 1, 2016, through October 31, 2017. Allocation requests are due August 1, 2016. Resources to be allocated include approximately 21 million node hours (nodes have 16 or 24 cores), 750 terabytes of shared data storage, and up to 1 petabyte of long-term data storage.

See the FY17 Allocations page of the NREL HPC website for more information.
