A Bright Future


UMass Amherst researcher Prashant Shenoy has long utilized MGHPCC to help local utilities develop algorithms geared to providing power more efficiently to customers.

 As part of the recently announced statewide Energy Extension Initiative to be housed at  UMass Amherst, Shenoy and his colleagues propose to design an automated system to collect and centrally store all of it on one or more servers to support the design of new techniques to optimize energy use by such facilities. The MGHPCC offers several thousand points of instrumentation to collect operational data on everything from HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) to fine-grain server power consumption and energy usage, yet such data currently goes uncollected.
