High End Compute is aiming to help clients get their models to run quicker, but also at a lower environmental cost. Currently we are focussing on reducing the energy consumption, but are looking at R&D in to reducing the overall environmental footprint (materials, wasted water, recycling, emboddied emissions) to give a #greenerCompute solution.
During 2020, UKRI (via CEDA) are running a number of workshops on "UKRI Net Zero"
Currently we are aware of the following projects and people working in this area:
- "Adept" EU Project with U. Edinburgh as lead partner. Also see the Adept YouTube Channel
- Bristol U., including Kerstin Eder, working on Energy Transparency
- Embecosm who, together with Bristol Univ Computer Science, have produced the MAGEEC measurement device
- U. de Cantabria, including Borja Perez
- DEEP and DEEP-ER projects, including Estela Suarez
- The EMiT Conference Series has a stream on low energy computing
- U. Ferrara, Italy, including Enrico Calore and Raffaele Tripiccione
- High End Compute
- Huddersfield Univ: we are sad to note that Violeta Holmes passed away earlier this year
- U. Liverpool including Prudence Wong (research on energy efficient scheduling & energy efficient GPU computing)
- MANGO Project
- Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU): Michael Bane
- Mont Blanc working on "European approach towards energy efficient high performance"
- HEC's Greener Compute support pages and news & views
