Energy efficiency has become one of the most important design goals for computer systems. Many studies have been conducted on saving energy by using different types of techniques in circuits, systems, and software. In recent years, researchers have expanded their examination of the environmental impacts of electronic systems. The impacts start from manufacturing, operation, to disposal. This tutorial will provide an overview of existing work on different aspects on green computing.
