Status: Approved

A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy. If the mechanical energy is used to produce electricity, the device may be called a wind generator.

Other energy sources

Suggested values:

Value Description
2020 stBN powergensource nuclear.svg nuclear All generators converting nuclear power to another kind of energy. It can be whether fission or fusion, according to generator:method=*
2020 stBN powergensource wind.svg wind Generators using wind power to produce mechanical energy or electricity.
2020 stBN powergensource water.svg hydro Generators taking water input and produces mechnaical energy or electricity
2020 stBN powergensource water.svg tidal Generators taking tidal water input on shores and produces mechnaical energy or electricity
2020 stBN powergensource water.svg wave
geothermal Generator converting heat from earth to steam or electricity.
2020 stBN powergensource sun.svg solar
Bahnpirat-power source-coal.svg coal
Bahnpirat-power source-gas.svg gas
Bahnpirat-power source-biofuel.svg biomass
Bahnpirat-power source-biofuel.svg biofuel
Bahnpirat-power source-biofuel.svg biogas
Bahnpirat-power source-oil.svg oil
Bahnpirat-power source-oil.svg diesel
Bahnpirat-power source-oil.svg gasoline
Bahnpirat-power source-waste.svg waste

Take care when choosing the source. For example, a power generator that takes waste as its primary fuel, turns it into biogas and then burns the biogas should be tagged with generator:source=waste. If, however, this generator takes shipments of biogas that were processed from waste elsewhere (or from an other intermediate generator), then it should be tagged with generator:source=biogas.

Please correct this table if you found any error and add missing values!
