A retrospective on the first year of the Green500. I have done a few of these now, and am in the interesting position of being the only student member of the team who has been around since the first release.


The latest release of the Green500 List in November 2008 marked its one-year anniversary. As such, this paper aims to provide an analysis and retrospective examination of the Green500 List in order to under- stand how the list has evolved and what trends have emerged. In addition, we present community feedback on the Green500 List, particularly from two Green500 birds-of-a-feather (BoF) sessions at the International Supercomputing Conference in June 2008 and SC 08 in November 2008, respectively.
