Iberdrola research grants awarded to Marina Zapater

Our colleague, Dr. Marina Zapater has been awarded a research grant by Fundación Iberdrola to lead a project on the optimization of renewable energies by using demand modelling techniques in SmartGrid. The project will be undertaken with Prof. José Luis Ayala, and Prof. José L. Risco, at Universidad Complutense de […]

GreenLSI helps MásMóvil to save energy

The researchers in GreenLSI, led by José M. Moya, are modelling the energy consumption and temperature evolution of multiple servers from MásMóvil when executing typical cloud applications. As each server behaves differently, and modeling its behavior requires multiple intrusive experiments, the availability of a large amount of servers is a great […]
