Topics and devices which are capable of generating power such as nuclear power generation, solar power generation and hydroelectric power generation
- Distributed power generation - decentralized or multi-source power generation
- Generators - a machine that converts mechanical energy into electricity
- Geothermal power generation - electricity generated from thermal energy stored in the Earth
- Hydroelectric power generation - electricity generated from the movement of water
- Magnetohydrodynamic power generation - or MHD generation, the generation of thermal or kinetic energy directly into electricity at high temperatures without moving parts
- Nuclear power generation - the use of sustained nuclear fission to generate heat and electricity
- Power distribution - the transmission and distribution of electrical power
- Power generation planning - the planning of the need, type, and location of power generators
- Solar power generation - the generation of electricity from the light of the sun
- Turbomachinery - machines that transfer energy between a rotor and a fluid that includes both turbines and compressors
