Cloud computing is the most prominent computing paradigm in the present era of information technology. However, data centers needed for hosting cloud services demand huge amount of electrical energy and release harmful gases to the atmosphere. To ensure a sustainable future, there is a need to focus on energy efficiency in cloud computing. Early literature pertaining to energy consumption in cloud computing is primarily focused on individual sub-domains like scheduling techniques, optimization, and green computing metrics. Research literature on cloud resource optimization is found to be the most discussed but less structured. This paper intends to provide a complete picture of energy efficiency in cloud computing. It also classifies heuristics-based optimization methods and the dynamic power management techniques. The survey shows the research trends based on regions, journals, conferences, etc., in the domain of energy efficiency in cloud computing. The study concludes with research issues and future research directions.
