ABSTRACT
<p>High-performance computing facilities in the US consume enormous amounts of electricity, cutting into research budgets and challenging efforts to reduce energy consumption and meet environmental goals. Facility designs that target efficiency greatly reduce energy demand. This case study describes strategies and technologies to achieve facility energy reductions through thoughtful design.</p>
INDEX TERMS
