The IEEE TCSC Technical Area of “Green Computing” is interested in hardware implementations, algorithms, tools, services, and applications that can make computing systems more environmental respect, for example, by reducing power consumption, CO2 emission. The computing systems interested here include chip, hard disk, desktop/laptop, server, network switch/router, SAN, RAID and other storage system, cluster, rack, data center, Grids, and Clouds.

Here is a snapshot of Green Computing at Google trends, where we can conclude that Green Computing has gained significant focus recently.
