In this paper, energy consumption in the data centre was studied where thousands of servers and other devices runs, energy are utilized to run the server and cooling the environment. Energy consumption can be reduced by switching off the idle server by means of migration of Virtual Machine from under-load Host. Load in cloud computing is maintained by migration of VM from the overloaded Host to a free Host or activate new Host. Based on this study, a reservation technique by using BIN packing was proposed in this paper with an overload detection algorithm. The proposed algorithm RBIN is experimented in 800 servers with 1024 Virtual Machines. From the experimental result, proposed method RBIN reduces energy in higher level.
