The high-technology sector – characterized by facilities such as laboratories, cleanrooms, and data centers – is often where innovation first occurs. These facilities are sometimes referred to as the “racecars” of the buildings sector because new technologies and strategies to increase performance often trickle down to other building types. Although these(More)
Energy information systems (real-time acquisition, analysis, and presentation of information from energy end-uses) in commercial buildings have demonstrated value as tools for improving energy efficiency and thermal comfort. These improvements include characterization through benchmarking, identification of retrofit opportunities, anomaly detection to(More)
SYNOPSIS We discuss a system for remote monitoring and control of heterogeneous commercial building HVAC systems via the Internet using CORBA protocols atop TCP/IP. ABSTRACT This project is intended to develop a prototype system which would permit remote monitoring and control of multiple commercial buildings across the Internet from a single control(More)
Global data center energy consumption is growing rapidly. In India, information technology industry growth, fossil-fuel generation, and rising energy prices add significant operational costs and carbon emissions from energy-intensive data centers. Adoption of energy-efficient practices can improve the global competitiveness and sustainability of data(More)
Within the past decade, there has been an increasing focus on improving energy efficiency in High Performance Computing (HPC). Improvements have been forthcoming, especially in the last 5 years, but there remains a strong need for continued if not accelerated progress. Much of this progress has been and will continue to be driven by market demands and the(More)
With increasing high performance computing (HPC) energy consumption and the rising cost of energy, it has become important to be able to monitor and manage energy andpower consumption. Dashboards will monitor and display energy and power consumption of various physical data center components in or near real time as well as trend data. The dashboard will(More)
High-performance computing facilities in the US consume enormous amounts of electricity,, cutting into research budgets and challenging efforts to reduce energy consumption and meet environmental goals. Facility designs that target efficiency greatly reduce energy demand. This case study describes strategies and technologies to achieve facility energy(More)
