HIGH-PERFORMANCE COMPUTING FOR
EU and Brazil - bringing Wind Energy Simulation towards Exacale
The goal of HPCWE is to address the following key open challenges in applying HPC on wind energy:
The HPCWE consortium consists of 13 partners representing the top academic institutes, HPC centres and industries in Europe and Brazil. By exploring this collaboration, this consortium will develop novel algorithms, implement them in state-of-the-art codes and test the codes in academic and industrial cases to benefit the wind energy industry and research in both Europe and Brazil.
