Project Cervantes: Can a web server be powered by a wind turbine?
Samuel Fernandes (ANU)

DATE: 2010-06-18
TIME: 10:00:00 - 11:00:00
LOCATION: Ian Ross Seminar Room, The Australian National University

This project aims to assess the potential benefits of adjusting a web
transaction processing load allow a web server to reduce power
consumption in response to the availability of renewable energy. Could
the load be adjusted in response to second by second changes in energy
available from a wind farm or solar array? The results of research and
tests will be presented. The significance of Google's recent acquisition
of a wind farm will also be discussed.

Samuel Fernandes is an engineering masters student with an interest in
green and sustainable technology. Sam completed COMP7310 Green ICT
Strategies and is now planning to establish his own consulting company.
