Center for Energy-Smart Electronic Systems (ES2)

ES2

THE CENTER FOR ENERGY-SMART ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS (ES2) is a National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) established to develop methodologies, tools and systems that will maximize energy efficiency for the operation of electronic systems, including data centers, "from the chip to the cooling tower."

How?

 

  • SMART allocation and distribution of IT load
  • SMART integration of controlled on-demand cooling
  • SMART elimination of energy waste and inefficiencies

This holistic approach to the development and design of energy-smart electronic systems could translate into millions of dollars in savings and a “greener” industry.

 

ES2 university partners: 

  • Binghamton University (lead)
  • Villanova University
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • University of Texas, Arlington
