We motivate the notion of green cryptographic engineering, wherein we discuss several approaches to energy minimization or energy efficient cryptographic processes. We propose the amortization of computations paradigm in the design of cryptographic schemes; this paradigm can be used in line with existing approaches. We describe an example structure that exemplifies this paradigm and at the end of the paper we ask further research questions for this direction.
