New fast-performing system enables NREL to further its mission of advancing energy efficiency


Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)  is building a new supercomputer for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) that is more energy efficient and 3.5 times more powerful than its existing system.¹ The new development is part of a long-standing collaboration between HPE and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to apply advanced supercomputing and HPC solutions to accelerate research across various DOE agencies. The new, fast-performing system, which NREL has named Eagle, will run more detailed models that simulate complex processes, systems, and phenomena to advance early research and development on energy technologies across fields including vehicle, wind power, and data sciences.

As computing advances and supercomputers increasingly adopt scalable performance, the industry will continue to combat energy consumption to lower operating costs and pollution levels. HPE is committed to designing innovative energy-efficient solutions for next-generation high performance computing technologies. Through collaborative efforts with NREL, from an initiative to enable data centers with hydrogen fuel cell to the new Eagle system, HPE is powering smarter, energy-conscious data center environments.
