DERI Green IT Research Wins Award

Dippy Aggarwal, University of Cincinnati computer science doctoral student, wins best poster award for her work at DERI on Leveraging Power Analytics and Linked Data for Enterprise Computing. The project explores how linked data technologies could be leveraged for IT systems energy management and provides a comparative study of technologies for energy metering models. 

Aggarwal’s presentation evolved from a summer 2011 internship at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) in Galway, Ireland.  She will now present the work at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, a series of conferences designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront. Presenters are leaders in their respective fields, representing industrial, academic and governme nt communities.

“Dippy’s internship work focused on low-cost approaches to understanding the energy usage of Office IT equipment with power analytical models. Her work fits within a wider project on enterprise energy management,” explains Dr. Edward Curry unit leader for Green and Sustainable IT Domain at DERI.

DERI has developed the Linked dataspace for Energy Intelligence based on W3C standards, Linked Data, and Semantic Sensor Networks. Energy Intelligence platforms can help organizations manage power consumption more efficiently by providing a functional view of the entire organization so that the energy consumption of business activities can be understood, changed, and reinvented to better support sustainable practices. The DERI platform has been used to develop a number of energy management systems from smart buildings to cloud computing, that enables real-time energy awareness and energy tracking dashboards to simplify the understanding of enterprise energy usage (organisation, business process, personal, etc.)

About Green and Sustainable IT @ DERI

The Green and Sustainable IT domain at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) investigates ICT-powered sustainability approaches for Energy Management, Smart Buildings, Smart Cities, Data Centres, and Cloud Computing using Next-Generation Future Internet technologies including Linked Data and the Internet of Things. In collaboration with industrial partners the domain researches solutions that positively impact people, organisations, and society.
