MIT: The ‘Internet Of Things’ Could Save Coal Power From Obama

New internet networking and improved computer hardware called “the internet of things” may have created an enormous market for coal power, according to a study published Thursday by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The study states that relatively simple networking upgrades could increase the efficiency of coal power plants from 33 to 49 percent and cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. These new networking techniques could allow coal plants to be “tuned” to operate much more efficiently and adjust more rapidly to changing prices, allowing them to go from a totally dormant state to full operation in less than two hours, a process which used to take more than three hours.
