How do we use oil for electricity?



  1. 0 Votes

    Oil is burned to produce heat to boil water, which produces steam to turn turbines and generate electricity. Except for charging car batteries, more as a matter of incidence than anything, the United States doesn’t tend to use oil for electricity.

    Only tiny quantities of oil are burned to generate electricity – no more than 1% or 2% of electricity. Coal makes about 45%, nuclear and natural gas about 20% each, hydropower around 7%, and everything else – solar, wind, oil, biomass, geothermal, tidal, etc. adds up to the remaining 8%.
