Finding the solutions to significant interrelated global energy and sustainability issues, such as managing wildlife habitats, designing efficient engines and improving air quality, requires computational modeling, simulation and analysis. The Ohio Supercomputer Center provides researchers in these areas with those resources.

Coal is currently the largest source of electricity generation in the United States, while gasoline and diesel fuel power most vehicles. However, coal, gasoline and diesel fuel are non-renewable resources, and the combustion of these fossil fuels produces various pollutants. As a result, alternative, non-polluting energy sources such as hydrogen are desirable.
