NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

Berkeley Lab Highlights HPC at Advanced Manufacturing Event

September 14, 2015

Peter Nugent, Division Deputy for Scientific Engagement in Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division, and David Skinner, who leads NERSC’s Strategic Partnerships effort, are participating this week in the third annual 2015 American Energy & Manufacturing Competitiveness Summit, where they will be discussing the increasing role of high performance computing in U.S. manufacturing.

The two-day summit is being hosted September 15-16, 2015 in Washington, DC by the Council on Competitiveness and the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

The event brings together leaders from industry, academia, labor, the national laboratories, government and media to discuss critical energy and manufacturing challenges and opportunities affecting U.S. prosperity, sustainability and security and ways to increase U.S. competitiveness in the production of clean energy products and energy productivity. It is also designed to foster new opportunities for public-private partnerships that promote energy efficiency, the adoption of renewable technologies and increased clean technology manufacturing investment.
