The High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation pairs industry partners with computational scientists at the DOE national laboratories to increase energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas generation in products and processes. The theme of this year’s Virtual Manufacturing Day Event will be to discuss technology needs in areas of high priority to DOE given the recent emphasis on combating climate change. We will explore the topics of decarbonization of industrial processes; research needs in the areas of carbon utilization and concentrated solar energy; and the issues around high hydrogen fuel mixtures for gas turbines or internal combustion engines. Hydrogen fuel mixtures presents unique challenges in combustion and combustors in terms of temperature and material degradation effects. We will engage in discussions to elucidate research topics to encourage researchers to apply capabilities to their solutions.
