Abstract

The Energy-oriented Centre of Excellence (EoCoE) applies cutting-edge computational methods in its mission to
accelerate the transition to the production, storage and management of clean, decarbonized energy. EoCoE is anchored in
the High Performance Computing (HPC) community and targets research institutes, key commercial players and SMEs
who develop and enable energy relevant numerical models to be run on exascale supercomputers, demonstrating their
benefits for low-carbon energy technology. The present project will draw on a successful proof-of-principle phase of
EoCoE-I, where a large set of diverse computer applications from four such energy domains achieved significant efficiency
gains thanks to its multidisciplinary expertise in applied mathematics and supercomputing. During this 2nd round, EoCoEII
will channel its efforts into 5 scientific Exascale challenges in the low-carbon sectors of Energy Meteorology, Materials,
Water, Wind and Fusion.

Goals

This multidisciplinary effort will harness innovations in computer science and mathematical
algorithms within a tightly integrated co-design approach to overcome performance bottlenecks and to anticipate future
HPC hardware developments. A world-class consortium of 18 complementary partners from 7 countries will form a unique
network of expertise in energy science, scientific computing and HPC, including 3 leading European supercomputing
centres. New modelling capabilities in selected energy sectors will be created at unprecedented scale, demonstrating the
potential benefits to the energy industry, such as accelerated design of storage devices, high-resolution probabilistic wind
and solar forecasting for the power grid and quantitative understanding of plasma core-edge interactions in ITER-scale
tokamaks. These flagship applications will provide a high-visibility platform for high-performance computational energy
science, cross-fertilized through close working connections to the EERA and EUROfusion consortia.
