Department of Energy High-Performance Computing Supported by Bipartisan Legislation

Sep 21, 2012

Sen. Bingaman, along with Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), introduced legislation to support the Department of Energy’s high-performance computing exascale initiative, which aims to develop computers 1,000 times more powerful than current supercomputers.

The DOE High-End Computing Improvement Act of 2012 (S. 3459) would authorize funds for the initiative through FY 2015.
