The energy consumption in the high performance computing and cloud services is enormous. This requires energy efficiency techniques to reduce power consumption in operation and cooling of the data servers and high performance computers. To search for more energy efficient techniques to save power, companies across the world share data and conduct survey. This article gives an overview of requirement of energy efficiency, different energy efficiency algorithms for supercomputers, cooling and energy efficiency techniques used across the globe.
There are multiple sources for energy consumption in high performance computing such as power consumption in running High Performance Computing (HPC), ...
