The Energy and Resources Scheme is 20% of the available compute time on Magnus. The Energy and Resources 2018 2020 call has a total of 58,000,000 core hours for allocation to successful projects, over the January to December 2018 2020 period.  Of this, 55,500,000 is available to the main call for applications and 2,500,000 will be set aside that can be applied for throughout the year by new project leaders that have recently become eligible for the scheme.  The set aside amount reduces pro rata through the year.

Note that 250,000 cores hours in a year is approximately the equivalent of two 16-core workstations.  Applications for such small allocations must specify why access to a supercomputer is necessary for the research, and based on the scoring criteria below such uses of the supercomputer are unlikely to be competitive against other applications who demonstrate they need the expensive interconnect.  The Nimbus , the research cloud at PawseyDocumentation Landing Page is better suited to single-node applications, and has a light-weight application process.
