  • The same idea of detailed power monitoring and energy accounting can also be applied at scale. I am currently leading an effort at UCSD which aims to instrument our whole department with … I believe the largest energy gains will come when we look at optimizing these large systems as a whole rather than individual pieces.

  • 1. Can a Greener Internet Help Us Moderate Climate Change? Invited Talk Computational Research in Boston Seminar Series MIT Boston, MA April 15, 2009 Dr. Larry Smarr Director, California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology Harry E. Gruber Professor, Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering Jacobs School of Engineering, UCSD
  • 2. Abstract This year marks a turning point in the debate on global climate change. The focus of the discussion is rapidly moving from a scientific analysis of how human activity effects climate change to a political process on how best to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. The Climate Group’s Smart 2020 study reveals that the global Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry produces greenhouse gases equivalent to that produced by the aviation industry (~2-3 percent). Furthermore, the ICT sector’s emissions will nearly triple, in a business-as-usual scenario, from 2002 to 2020. On the other hand, the Climate Group estimates that transformative applications of ICT to electricity grids, logistic chains, intelligent transportation and building infrastructure, and other social systems can reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by about 15 percent— five times ICT’s own footprint! I will discuss initiatives on university campuses in the US and Australia to innovate new solutions to these challenges. I will describe in detail the NSF-funded GreenLight Project at UCSD which instruments an 8-rack modular data center, allowing end users to discover the energy cost of computational solving an application using different algorithms and/or different computing architectures.
