Mechanical energy

After looking at the wiki page and the taginfo, I don't see what value I shall enter for "mechanical energy" powering stuff like e.g. millstones, saws, hammers etc. One example would be https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/7530387022

This usecase is releveant despite it hasn't been added in the first proposal. I'd suggest generator:output:mechanical=* ? Fanfouer (talk) 10:17, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
It looks like node 7530387022 is a historic water mill? This can be mapped as man_made=watermill, if that's correct. My understanding is that generator:output=* is used with power=generator, not with mechanical windmills or water mills. --Jeisenbe (talk) 17:06, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
Ok for man_made=watermill too. generator:output:mechanical=* will be actually relevant for power generators on which mechanical energy is took as a side business (like steam for district heating next to nuke or thermal power plants) Fanfouer (talk) 17:14, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
