Computational Research and Theory (CRT) Facility

Project Description

Wang Hall, previously the Computational Research and Theory Facility, is the new home for high performance computing at LBNL and houses the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC). NERSC supports DOE’s mission to discover, develop and deploy computational and networking capabilities to analyze, model, simulate, and predict complex phenomena important to the DOE.


Research areas include global climate change research, fusion energy research, biological and environmental research, basic energy science, and astrophysics.

The facility is located on the hillside of Chu road near the Blackberry Gate entrance to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
