Energy Efficient High Performance Computing Working Group

Welcome to the EE HPC Working Group website, where your comments, suggestions, and questions are always welcome.
Please use Google Chrome or Firefox web browsers to view this site correctly.

Mission:

To encourage implementation of energy conservation measures, energy efficient design in high performance computing (HPC), and share ideas.

Vision:

  • Reduce expenditure and curb environmental impact through increased energy efficiency in HPC centers.

  • Encourage the HPC community to lead in energy efficiency as they do in computing performance.

  • Develop and disseminate best practices for maximizing energy efficiency in HPC facilities and systems.

  • Serve as a forum for sharing of information (peer-to-peer exchange) and collective action.

Current Activities:

A bi-monthly EE HPC WG membership meeting reviews current team activities led by the Infrastructure, Systems and Conferences Sub-Groups.

This meeting is held the second Tuesday of February, April, June, August, October and December. Minutes summarize team activities.

Priorities:

Energy efficient design guidelines and specifications for super computer centers.

The Working Group will serve as a forum for discussing and distributing information about design guidelines and specifications. While the group may not specifically create these guidelines and specifications, group members are encouraged to share pertinent documents, such as the ones developed by the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP).

Best practices, case studies, and lessons learned in design of super computer centers.

The Working Group will promote collaboration between members to share case studies, best practices and lessons learned. Any member of the group with a case study or lessons learned is encouraged to share with the group and the rest of the HPC community.

Infrastructure: Energy performance metrics and benchmarking.

The Infrastructure Energy Efficiency Metrics and Benchmarking Sub Group will work towards forming a consensus on appropriate metrics and benchmarks for measuring and driving improvements in HPC data center infrastructure energy performance.  

Computing Systems: Energy performance metrics and benchmarking.

The Computing Systems Energy Efficiency Metrics and Benchmarking Sub Group will work towards forming a consensus on appropriate metrics and benchmarks for measuring and driving improvements in HPC systems energy performance.

Conferences: Energy efficiency technical programs.

The Conferences Sub Group will leverage technical programs at conferences, such as SCxx, to increase energy efficiency awareness and knowledge.

Presentations: EE HPC WG presentations from past conferences.
