The Power Generation industry is engaged in the conversion of energy – converting chemical or atomic energy of a fuel to mechanical energy and finally into electrical energy. Power plants typically generate power by burning fossil fuels (coal, gas, oil) through nuclear or renewable sources and methods (solar, water, wind).
The power generation market is comprised of electric utilities and industrial power producers. Utilities generate, transmit, and distribute electricity for sale in a local market, while industrial power plants generate electrical power for use within the industrial facility, such as a power plant within a steel mill or within a desalination plant. Utilities and industrial power plants can be categorized by fuel or by design such as Cogeneration, Combined Cycle, Coal Gasification, Super-Critical, Ultra-Critical, Nuclear, and Hydro-electric.
