NDSU is joining with one of the Premiere National Laboratories to find new ways to use computing power in energy technology. Senator Hoeven is hosting an Energy Symposium at the University and bringing in representatives from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and other companies to talk about how bigger and faster computers can aid oil exploration and extraction, increased efficiencies in wind and improve environmental standards for energy production.
