Large-scale simulation helps plan the future of energy

“Leading the energy change” is the motto of the EDF group, a key player in the European energy industry. To achieve that aim, EDF devotes a big slice of its resources to R&D. Its 2,000-strong R&D team investigates ways to optimize the Group's operating performance and lay a solid groundwork for the future.

Working closely with industrial groups, laboratories and scientific teams, EDF R&D has recently proven that high-performance simulation provides extremely valuable support to scientific research. Barco designed and implemented a collaborative, 24 million pixel MegaCADWall at the EDF labs at Clamart, France, that brings all the research data to life.
