Billion dollar supercomputer boost for UK power predictions: Page 2 of 2

February 17, 2020 //By Nick Flaherty
The current system of three Cray XC40 supercomputers has 460,000 compute cores capable of 14PFLOPS operations per second with 2Pbytes of memory and 24Pbytes of storage.
A new billion dollar supercomputer at the Met Office in the UK will be used to help stabilise the power grid with more renewable energy sources and create a digital twin
and industry make better decisions to stay safe and thrive.

The supercomputer will also be part of an ambitious UK project to create a digital twin of the Earth's clmate.  "The improved processing power will deliver a step-change in weather forecasting and climate modelling capability for the UK, such as the further development of the Earth Systems Model, which involves collaboration with the many UKRI-NERC funded research centres," said Professor Ted Shepherd, chair of the UK government's Science Review Group.
