See sge_types(1):

 You can specify a PE name which  uses  the  wildcard  character,  "*".
 Thus  the  request  "pvm*"  will match any parallel environment with a
 name starting with the string "pvm". In the case of multiple  parallel
 environments  whose names match the name string, the parallel environ-
 ment with the most available slots is chosen.

Apparently the sorting done by SGE is what you want.
