The Green500 List seeks to encourage sustainable supercomputing by raising awareness to the energy efficiency of such systems. Since its official launch at SC07, interest in the Green500 List and energy efficiency has continued to grow at a rapid rate. The purpose of this BoF is to provide a forum for the high-end computing community to provide input to ongoing Green500 List efforts. During the BoF, we will briefly explain the history of the Green500, describe the current and future challenges of tracking energy efficiency in high-performance systems, analyze trends in the current Green500 List, and solicit constructive feedback from the high-performance community to improve the impact of the Green500 on efficient high-performance system design. In addition, invited experts on large-scale energy efficiency, with respect to computing platforms and infrastructure support, will present their perspectives on the state of green supercomputing and where it is headed.
