Grid computing is the forerunner for deploying high performance scientific parallel applications. Execution of parallel application on computational grids generally consumes enormous amount of energy. Energy requirements for computation grids are increasing in nonlinear fashion due to massive digitization of the physical world. As a result of this Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operational Expenditure (OPEX) of computational grid requirements are also increasing. One way to reduce this is to minimize the energy consumption. To envisage this, it is essential to understand the energy consumption by parallel applications. As part of this work, we proposed a novel energy measurement framework based on software approach for parallel applications. Further we validate the framework for measuring energy consumption of a parallel Message Passing Interface (MPI) application on a computational grid with varying workloads.
