NREL Report: Wind Could Supply 20 Percent of US Energy by 2030

HPCwire summarizes a recent report from the US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory that explains how supercomputing-led scientific advances could make wind a greater supplier of the country's energy needs.

Exascale Predictive Wind Plant Flow Physics Modeling

Wind is an abundant and secure energy resource and could one day supply up to 30 percent of electrical power in the United States. Scientists have made great improvements in wind turbine efficiency, but to advance wind energy and harness its full potential, they need exascale computing.
