Demand for High Performance Computing (HPC) is growing in both the public and private sectors. It is also highly energy-intensive. The Federal government is required by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) to reduce energy intensity in all facilities, including laboratories and industrial buildings, by 30% by 2015. The increasing need for HPC and the attendant energy intensity threatens to derail the progress toward this and other goals. Through meeting mandated energy reductions, the Federal government is poised to lead by example in energy efficiency.
