I am searching for the most important literature and slide references for modeling current and future energy costs of floating-point operations and data transfers across the CPU, memory, network, and storage. I have marked this question as a community wiki, and I would prefer that you limit each answer to the following format:

Title, Authors, Location/Conference/Journal, Year, DOI/URL, Summary of what information the paper or presentation provides relevant to my request.

I remember seeing some papers about this at the SC (Supercomputing) conference. Have you tried looking there? –  Paul Dec 8 '12 at 13:59

There have been numerous panels and reports about exascale computing that should have these sorts of numbers. I would look for reports that came out from DoE (or were written for DoE). Also, there may be relevant stuff at http://www.exascale.org .
