Legal requirements regarding the Environmental Total Cost of Ownership will soon be in place in Europe. 

Sustainability is in direct contradiction with the current design of the value chain and its innovation practices and is bound to create resistance and conflict between the stakeholders. However, it will also create opportunities for HPC to contribute to the global notion of ‘green computing’.

We will juxtapose the views of two major stakeholders - technology provision (represented by the Fraunhofer) and software (Cineca) - in order to determine where the seeds of possible solutions exist and how to go about implementing them.
