Parallel Distributed Infrastructure for Minimization of Energy

Participating in the live Twitter chat "Less energy consumption in ICT"

Mon, 2015-06-22

ICT-Energy, a coordinated activity where ParaDIME project belongs, hosted a live Twitter chat on the 18th of June in the framework of the Sustainable Energy Week and the Micro-Energy Day. The Twitter chat could be followed by the hashtag #LessEnergyICT. Below these line you can read the Storify of the live chat.





During the week, ParaDIME partner Barcelona Supercomputing Center offered information to the visitors to the MareNostrum supercomputer about micro-energy. Micro-energy refers to the energy that is often disregarded as unimportant but actually plays a significant role in our daily life. As an example… when you run out of battery in your mobile phone and really need to make that call!!! The amount of energy involved in this case is really very small compared to the energy required to drive a car, but you definitely notice when it's not there…
