Important factors in dynamic power calculation are the activity and the load capacitance that needs to be switched by each physical driver in the design. Some of the factors in determining the loading capacitance are fanout and interconnect distance. With clocks typically having higher activity and fanouts, the power associated with clock nets can be significant.
