Who we are

The Software Energy Footprint Lab (SEFLab) is a unique research facility to study the impact of software on the energy consumption servers. The lab was founded in February 2012 as a joined effort between IT certifier the Software Improvement Group (SIG) and the CleanTech research programme of the Amsterdam University of Applied Science (Hogeschool van Amsterdam, HvA). The goal of the SEFLab is to provide tools that allows researchers to gain further insight into the impact of software on the energy consumption servers. We strive for this goal because we envision a future where the use of green software is obvious.

The SEFLab facilitates multiple measurement setups to measure energy consumption of individual hardware components in various types of servers. The SEFLab allows for detailed comparison of complete software applications and software architectures to different programme solution and pieces of source code. In collaboration with, but not limited to, consortium members of the Green IT Amsterdam Region and the Knowledge Network Green Software (KNGS) various PROJECTS have been started with different PARTNERS.
