How do power plants work? How do we make electricity?

Dec 28, 2018 · Types of power plants Steam turbine. Most traditional power plants make energy by burning fuel to release heat.For that reason, they're called thermal (heat-based) power plants. Coal and oil plants work much as I've shown in the artwork above, burning fuel with oxygen to release heat energy, which boils water and drives a steam turbine.This basic design is sometimes called a simple cycle.
