Energy Efficient High-Performance Working Group

The HPC industry is responding to the demand for more powerful equipment, and consequently, creating increasingly energy intensive products. However, as profit-maximizing entities, businesses have a clear need for energy efficient computing due to the uncertainties in energy markets. The Energy Efficient HPC Working Group (EE HPC WG) will target both public and private HPC owners, operators and users to increase collective knowledge and stimulate demand for energy efficient HPC.

The Green Grid

The Green Grid is a global consortium of IT companies and professionals seeking to improve energy efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystems around the globe. The organization seeks to unite global industry efforts to standardize on a common set of metrics, processes, methods and new technologies to further its common goals.


SPECpower_ssj2008 is the first industry-standard SPEC benchmark that evaluates the power and performance characteristics of volume server class and multi-node class computers. With SPECpower_ssj2008, SPEC is defining server power measurement standards in the same way we have done for performance.
