Summary on Grant Application Form
This 2 year project will leverage Lancaster University's entire computational resource network to form a 1000 host testbed for end-to-end energy consumption management options.The study will characterise current usage patterns and evaluate the opportunities presented by emerging applications and technologies for consumption reduction. The study will assess both central control options and engaging information sharing coupled with participative management decision making as means for reducing consumption. The study will propose and test an optimal combination of the two approaches.Additional outcomes will include future network sustainability forecasts, user behaviour predictions and novel consumption management strategies.
