Abstract: Recently, the rapid development in processing speeds, fast storage devices and better network connectivity, hasaccelerated the popularization of cloud computing. Cloud computing is an on-demand-servicewhich provides users with high end servers,storage and processing capabilities where the user need not be concerned with its infrastructure.Although, there are abundant resources in the cloud infrastructure, for the efficient working and execution of tasks, task scheduling plays a crucial role. Task scheduling results in better performance (throughput) of the system along with better resource utilization which ultimately results inreduced energy consumption. At any given time, a processor should never be in idle state, as it still consumes some amount of energy. In this paper, the use of Quantum Genetic Algorithm has led to the reduction in energy consumption. The objective is to find a scheduling sequencewhich can be implemented ina cloud computing environment. Along with minimizing energy consumption, the algorithm helps reduce makespan time of a processor as well.The results show a decrease in energy consumption by 10-15% under different test scenarios involving a variable number of tasks, processors, and the number of iterations (generations) for which the algorithm was run. The algorithm converges to the desired result within 10-15 iterations, as can be seen from the results published in this paper.
