9:00am CalPlug Welcome
Prof. G.P. Li, Calit2 / CalPlug Director – Presentation
9:15am Research on Computer Power-Management
With more devices being connected every day, in both homes and workplaces, how can we further improve energy efficiency with Small Network Equipment to constrain the energy demand? This session will address the issues, challenges and possible solutions.

|Michael Green – Presentation||University of California, Irvine|
|Charles Kim – Presentation||Southern California Edison|
10:15am Automated Demand Response for Data Centers
Calit2 building is currently serving as a test site for ADR in a Data Center. What are the current findings and how do the results help in managing the dynamic demand of peak loads for utilities? How can consumers partake in improving ADR? This project is being conducted in collaboration with Intel, EPRI, Schneider Electric as well as Southern California Edison.
