Coal is the most common electricity-generating fuel in Africa.
The majority of electricity is generated from fossil fuels, coal, oil and gas. Fossil fuels need to be replaced by other sources as the resources we rely on are becoming more …scarce. Increasingly, renewable energy sources are being used such as wind, solar, hydro-electric, tidal but these represent a small percentage of the total generation. Nuclear power has had its share of problems but in the twenty first century, it is making a comeback. Better controlled and safer than early nuclear power stations, new stations are being constructed.
About 45% of electricity in the US is from Coal fired power stations. Gas accounts for about 25% and Nuclear for 20% The remainder is mostly renewables, principally hydro-elec…tric. Fossil Fuels Fossil Fuels

biomass power plant
Most electric plants use steam to turn a turbine which then turns a generator.
Oil is now used the most
The coal is used mostly to generate electricity.
When compared to coal and hydro. the installation cost for hydro is more at start, but maintanence cost is very less or vic versa (for thermal)
