Adapting Service lifeCycle towards EfficienT Clouds (ASCETiC) is focused on providing novel methods and tools to support software developers aiming to optimise energy efficiency and minimise the carbon footprint resulting from designing, developing, deploying, and running software in Clouds.

Extend the existing development models for green and efficient software design, supporting sustainability and high quality of service during development and execution

Develop and evaluate a framework with identified energy efficiency parameters and metrics for Cloud services

Develop methods to measure, analyse and evaluate energy consumption in software development and execution

Integrate energy and quality efficiency into service construction, deployment and operation leading to an Energy Efficiency Embedded Service Lifecycle
