Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Has anyone implemented Bulk Geocoding with Nominatim? I have my own, local instance of Nominatim running but I am not sure how to best proceed when I want to geocode several 100k of addresses.

Simply write 10 lines of code in a scripting language of your choice that fire off the required HTTP requests to your locally running Nominatim. I don't think a ready-made script exists but it should really just be a few lines of code, and those lines would heavily depend on what format your data is in and what output you want.

(I removed a previous answer after it became clear that this question is about a locally running instance.)
