Nowadays, energy saving has become critical in the whole society. From the aspect of the energy saving, ICT is expected to play an essential role within the progress of green technologies in the society as a whole.
Within that situation, I focus on the research for energy-saving technology, especially energy-saving for data centers -- which energy consumption has increased dramatically, optimization of energy consumption(EMS) of smart grids(HEMS, DEMS, BEMS, CEMS), or communication protocols for interoperability.
