NREL HPC Annual Call for Allocation Requests
The National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) provides High Performance Computing and related capabilities to support the mission of the Department of Energy, 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 utilize these resources.
On behalf of EERE, NREL runs an annual open call for requests in which research and development projects can request use of the compute resources at NREL (called an allocation). This email serves as the open call for allocations. 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 (/projects) and up to 1 petabyte of long-term data storage.
Allocations may be requested by completing the Allocation Request Form and submitting via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than August 1, 2016. Additional forms and information may be found on the NREL HPC website at https://hpc.nrel.gov/users/allocations/fy17-allocations.
