The steam engine is still used in the most modern power plants. 80% of the world's electricity is generated by steam power. What has changed, however, is the use of huge steam turbines that have replaced pistons in steam engines. The energy of coal, sunlight, biomass, wind or nuclear energy is used to generate steam to drive a turbine. The turbine, which has been put into motion, generates electricity via a synchronous turbogenerator.
