High Performance Computing for Materials (HPC4Mtls) Solicitation

The HPC4Mtls Program seeks qualified industry partners to participate in short-term, collaborative projects with DOE's national laboratories. Through support from the Office of Fossil Energy and EERE's Fuel Cell Technologies Office and Vehicle Technologies Office, 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 developing, modifying, and/or qualifying new or modified materials through the application of high performance computing, modeling, simulation, and data analysis.

H2@Scale CRADA Call

Through this request for proposals being issued by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), DOE's HFTO seeks to double the impact of its funding in the applied research portion of its portfolio to accelerate technology advancement in support of the Hydrogen at Scale (H2@ Scale) objectives. This request for proposals also seeks to increase industrial and stakeholder engagement in H2@ Scale through investment and active participation in the associated projects. DOE is seeking qualified partners to participate in cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) projects with the H2@ Scale national laboratories consortium.
