The workshop will focus on HPC techniques applied to the energy sector that have the power to improve and reform many industrial sectors.  HPC can provide solutions for the energy sector, for example oil and gas giving solutions in upstream, midstream and downstream problems, improve wind energy performance, solve issues of combustion efficiency for transportation systems, making nuclear systems more efficient and safer, improving solar energy systems, optimizing wind energy systems, improving the quality and efficiency of seismic and geophysical simulations, and so on.

With the appearance in the near future of exascale systems, this opens new opportunities for more complex numerical simulations of energy systems that can represent in a more realistic way the physical system.
