This paper investigates the potential of General Purpose Graphic Processing Unit (GPGPU) for the serve rand HMI parts of Energy Management System (EMS). TheHMI investigation focuses on the applicability and performance improvement of GPGPU for scattered data interpolation algorithms typically used to visually represent the overall state of a power network. The server side investigation focuses onfine grain parallelization of EMS applications by targeting the sparse linear solver. The different performance evaluations show the high potential of GPGPU for the HMI part with a speedup factor up to 100 at the cost of acceptable approximations, while the benefit on the server side varies from a speedup factor of up to 300 to 0 depending on the application.
