|Tools for this tag|
|fission||plants using fission to produce heat, steam and then electricity|
|fusion||plants using nuclear fusion to produce heat and then electricity|
|water-storage||plant 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 plant:method=run-of-the-river plants.
|water-pumped-storage||plant producing electricity like plant:method=water-storage and additionaly able to pump water from a lower lake to the storage lake when needed.|
|run-of-the-river||plant 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 plant:method=run-of-the-river plants.
|thermal||plant producing hot water/steam with sun power|
|photovoltaic||plant producing electicity with sun power|
