Energy efficiency is an important concern in computer systems from small handheld devices to large data centers and supercomputers. Improving energy efficiency requires metrics and models: metrics to assess designs and identify promising energy-efficient technologies, and models to understand the effects of resource utilization decisions on power consumption. To facilitate energy-efficiency improvements, this dissertation presents JouleSort, the first completely specified full-system energy… 
Towards energy-proportional computing for enterprise-class server workloads
TLDR
This paper investigates whether it is possible to achieve energy proportionality for an enterprise-class server workload, namely SPECpower_ssj2008 benchmark, by using Intel's Running Average Power Limit (RAPL) interfaces and sheds light on the efficacy of the RAPL interfaces and provides guidance for designing power-management techniques for enterprise- class workloads.
A Comparison of High-Level Full-System Power Models
TLDR
This analysis shows that a model based on OS utilization metrics and CPU performance counters is generally most accurate across the machines and workloads tested, and is particularly useful for machines whose dynamic power consumption is not dominated by the CPU, as well as machines with aggressively power-managed CPUs.

JouleSort: a balanced energy-efficiency benchmark
TLDR
This work proposes and motivate JouleSort, an external sort benchmark, for evaluating the energy efficiency of a wide range of computer systems from clusters to handhelds, and demonstrates a Joule sort system that is over 3.5x as energy-efficient as last year's estimated winner.
Run-time modeling and estimation of operating system power consumption
