Abstract: Cloud Computing has emerged as a popular technology that support computing on demand services by allowing users to follow the pay-per-use-on-demand model. Minimizing energy consumption in cloud systems has many benefits that enable green computing. Energy aware task scheduling in cloud to the users by service cloud providers has non negligible influences on optimal resources utilization and thereby on the cost benefit. The traditional algorithms for task scheduling are not well enough for cloud computing. In such environment, tasks should be efficiently scheduled such a way that the make span is reduced. Load balancing is a significant area of cloud computing environment which ensures that all connected devices or processors carry out same amount of work in equal time. With an aim to make cloud resources and services accessible to the cloud user easily and conveniently, different algorithms and models for load balancing in cloud computing is being developed. This paper aims to study an energy efficient load balancing algorithm that is intended to minimize performance parameters like make span, latency, total execution time.
