The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) High Performance Computing for Manufacturing Program, (HPC4Mfg) intends to issue, on behalf of the Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), its fifth solicitation in January 2018. This program is designed to spur the use of national lab supercomputing resources and expertise to advance innovation in energy efficient manufacturing



In this solicitation, we are seeking qualified industry partners to participate in short-term, collaborative projects with the Department of Energy's (DOE's) national laboratories. Selected industry partners will be granted access to High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities and experienced staff at DOE National Laboratories. The collaborations will address key challenges in U.S. manufacturing by apply modeling, simulation, and data analysis to the manufacturing of materials with the intent to improve energy efficiency, increase productivity, reduce cycle time, enable next-generation technologies, test control system algorithms, investigate intensified processes, lower energy cost, and accelerate innovation.



Projects must demonstrate potential impact to energy efficiency in manufacturing and/or the development of new clean energy technologies with a potential for broad national impact. We will solicit proposals in the following primary areas:



? Proposals that require HPC modeling and simulation to overcome impactful manufacturing process challenges resulting in reduced energy consumption and/or increased productivity, and


? Proposals that uniquely exploit HPC modeling and simulation to reduce energy consumption through improved clean energy technology design and clean energy manufacturing.



Eligibility for this program is limited to entities that manufacture products in the U.S. for commercial applications and the organizations that support them . Selected projects will be awarded up to $300,000 to support compute cycles and work performed by the national lab partners. All DOE national laboratories are eligible to participate. The industry partner must provide a participant contribution of at least 20% of the DOE funding for the project . Project durations are for one year. The HPC4Mfg Program anticipates making multiple awards, subject to the availability of funding.
