Method by which the energy is generated in a given generator
|fission||Generators using fission to produce heat, steam and then electricity||PWR, BWR-1, BWR-6, RBMK-1000, RBMK-1500, VVER, CANDU, CPR-1000, EPR|
|fusion||Generators using nuclear fusion to produce heat and then electricity||tokamak, stellarator, ICF, cold-fusion|
|wind_turbine||Wind turbine||horizontal_axis, vertical_axis|
|water-storage||Generator producing electricity with turbines fed by water coming from a lake behind a dam.
Note: Power plants in Switzerland must have a storage capacity of at least 25% of the average expected winter production, otherwise they are generator:method=run-of-the-river plants.
|francis_turbine, kaplan_turbine, pelton_turbine|
|water-pumped-storage||Generator producing electricity like generator:method=water-storage and additionaly able to pump water from a lower lake to the storage lake when needed.||francis_turbine|
|run-of-the-river||Generator producing electricity with turbine using stream of a river (with no storage dam)
Note: Power plants in Switzerland having storage dams with a capacity less than 25% of the average expected winter production are generator:method=run-of-the-river plants.

|thermal||Generator producing hot water/steam with sun power||steam_turbine, solar_thermal_collector|
|photovoltaic||Generator producing electricity with sun power||solar_photovoltaic_panel|
|combustion||gas_turbine, combined_cycle, reciprocating_engine, steam_generator, steam_turbine|
