Power Generation

Electricity generation is the process of creating electricity from other forms of energy. Mankind has been generating electricity on an industrial scale since 1881.

Electricity is most often generated at a power station by electromechanical generators, primarily driven by heat engines fueled by chemical combustion or nuclear fission but also by other means such as the kinetic energy of flowing water and wind.

Power Generation

The first power plants used hydroelectric and fossil fuels. Since then, other methods of power generation have been introduced: natural gas, oil, nuclear, and small amounts of power generated by solar, tidal, wind, and geothermal sources.

In 2006, about 15% of global power generation was through nuclear, 16% through hydro, 68% through fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas), and less than 1% through renewables (biomass, solar, wind, tidal).

Power generation involves either transforming heat energy, such as burning oil into mechanical energy, or mechanical energy such as the moving blades of a windmill into electrical energy, using a generator. Even in the case of an advanced power source such as nuclear, the heat from fissioning nuclei is used to heat water, which turns a turbine and provides electricity.
