Thermal Power Stations
“What type of facility can convert thermal energy to electrical?”
Energy can be generated in a wide multitude of methods. However, (and perhaps unfortunately) the most popular method is to heat an energy dense material to boil water into steam to drive a turbine. This facility known as a Thermal Power Station. Thermal Power Stations usually operate under a Rankine Cycle and can run on multiple types of input such as coal, petroleum, and municipal waste.
