In response to worldwide demand for resource conservation and sustainability, the computing industry is investing heavily in making more energy-efficient computers. In Energy Aware Computing, the authors show that both hardware and software have a role in conserving energy. Drawing on their combined engineering experience, the authors describe how computer systems from embedded systems up through enterprise data centers can save power by making energy-efficient hardware and software decisions at the design stage.Energy Aware Computing lays a foundation for understanding how computers use energy, describes how to measure it, and provides specific design methodologies for both hardware and software that lead to saving energy
"This is the first and most comprehensive book about the state-of-the-art of energy-aware computing, including hardware, software and tools. A must read book for anybody who wants to work in this area. " Weisong Shi, Associate Professor of Computer Science, Wayne State University
"A comprehensive and very informative book on Energy Aware Computing that illustrates saving power by energy-efficient hardware and software design decisions...A blueprint for organizations to design and follow energy conservation practices with hardware and software..." G. R. Gangadharan, Researcher, IBM Research - India
"If you're a developer, read this book, internalize the guidance, and write apps that thrill your users and Mother Earth." George O. Goodman, Executive Director, Climate Savers Computing Initiative
