Sustainable HPC: Modeling, Characterization, and Implications of Carbon Footprint in Modern HPC Systems

by   Baolin Li, et al.

The rapid growth in demand for HPC systems has led to a rise in energy consumption and carbon emissions, which requires urgent intervention. In this work, we present a comprehensive framework for analyzing the carbon footprint of high-performance computing (HPC) systems, considering the carbon footprint during both the hardware production and system operational stages. Our work employs HPC hardware component carbon footprint modeling, regional carbon intensity analysis, and experimental characterization of the system life cycle to highlight the importance of quantifying the carbon footprint of an HPC system holistically.
