The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Google Cloud have entered into a five-year agreement that provides the former with access to a broad range of Google Cloud technologies.

This technology agreement will help the DOE scale research efforts and ultimately drive ‘innovation’ across DOE national labs and field sites.

The agreement will also make it easier for DOE’s more than 100,000 employees and contractors to access Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Google Workspace productivity tools.

The agreement encompasses the entire catalog of GCP services, including Google Cloud Storage, BigQuery, AutoML, Cloud GPUs and TPUs, Google Kubernetes Engine, and TensorFlow.

The DOE envisions a diverse range of use cases for its implementation of Google Cloud–from using machine learning models to predict which energy equipment will require preventative maintenance, to helping cities identify more cost-efficient renewable energy sources, to managing the exabytes of data pouring in from DOE research facilities.

DOE personnel can also now take advantage of Google Professional Services and Chrome Browser Support.

Also, they will have access to future Google Cloud offerings when they become commercially available.
