RFI Access to High Performance Computing Resources at Department of Energy National Labs

Opportunity Title:

RFI Access to High-Performance Computing Resources at the Department of Energy National Labs

Opportunity Number:



This is a Request for Information (RFI) issued by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) on behalf of the Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office (AMMTO) and the Fossil Energy and Carbon Management Office (FECM). The intent of this RFI is to better understand the perceived value of high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities to manufacturers and the experiences of companies that have interacted with the High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) program.

The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback from the public, including key stakeholders in the manufacturing sector, especially from small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) based in the U.S., past participants in funded programs through the DOE HPC4EI initiative, including HPC4Mfg (Manufacturing) and HPC4Mtls (Materials), and companies that may have an interest in participating in future HPC4EI programs.

This RFI is not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA); therefore, DOE is not accepting applications at this time. DOE may issue a FOA in the future based on or related to the content and responses to this RFI; however, DOE may also elect not to issue a FOA. There is no guarantee that a FOA will be issued as a result of this RFI. Responding to this RFI does not provide any advantage or disadvantage to potential applicants if DOE chooses to issue a FOA regarding the subject matter. Final details, including the anticipated award size, quantity, and timing of funded awards, will be subject to Congressional appropriations and direction.

Any information obtained as a result of this RFI is intended to be used by the Government on a non-attribution basis for planning and strategy development; this RFI does not constitute a formal solicitation for proposals or abstracts. Your response to this notice will be treated as information only. DOE will review and consider all responses in its formulation of program strategies for the identified materials of interest that are the subject of this request. DOE will not provide reimbursement for costs incurred in responding to this RFI. Respondents are advised that DOE is under no obligation to acknowledge receipt of the information received or provide feedback to respondents with respect to any information submitted under this RFI. Responses to this RFI do not bind DOE to any further actions related to this topic.

Please focus on the aspects that are most pertinent to you or your field and answer as few or as many of the questions below as you would like.

Category A: Respondent Type

Category B: Value of HPC to Industry

Category C: Experience with HPC4EI program
