Overview of Power Generation & Storage (4911-PG)

— The electric power industry involves the generation, transmission, distribution and sale of electric power to the general public. The electric power industry is commonly split up into four processes. These are electricity generation such as a power station, electric power transmission, electricity distribution and electricity retailing. Without the Power Industry, no other industrial sectors could exist, making it the world's largest in the number and value of projects and facilities. The primary product of the industry is alternating current (AC) electrical power. Electricity is produced by generators that convert mechanical energy into electrical energy when large coils are rotated in a powerful magnetic field. Most commercial power comes from turbine engines powered by steam produced by burning fossil fuels, mainly coal and natural gas. Other power sources include steam from nuclear reactors; conventional hydroelectric conversion; and renewable sources such as solar, wind, and geothermal.

Power Storage - Batteries - This market segment also includes energy storage devices such as batteries in dry cell, wet cell, lithium ion, alkaline, nickel-cadmium and zinc-chloride types, as well as Fuel Cell technologies such as Hydrogen Fuel Cells and PEM fuel cells.
