Thermal power plant:-

-Large amount of fossil fuels are burnt every day in power stations to heat up water to produce steam which further runs the turbine to generate electricity.

-The transmission of electricity is more efficient than transporting coal or petroleum over the same distance. Therefore, many thermal power plants are set up near coal or oil fields.

-The term thermal power plant is used since fuel is burnt to produce heat energy which is converted into electrical energy.
