Does thermal energy run on gasoline?
Gasoline can combusted and given out thermal energy but I suspect the questing ask about thermal energy plant. Thermal energy plant usually referred to Geothermal power plant or Solarthermal power plant. Geothermal plant run on the thermal energy from earth and Solarthermal run on the solar radiation transformed to heat. If the question ask for the latter then no, thermal energy plant doesn't run on gasoline. ...

What does a thermal power plant do that a coal power plant doesn't?
In a thermal power plant, the conversion of thermal heat into rotational energy is achieved. This can be achieved by using the thermal heat from burning coal or from burning oil or from burning gas or from steam generated by solar means (insolation). In a coal power plant the thermal heat obtained from burning coal is converted into rotational energy, which drives the generator and eventually, electrical power is generated. ...
Asked in Mechanical Engineering
Should a power plant where the prime mover is a gas turbine be categorized as a thermal power plant?
No, a power plant that uses fossil fuels such as gas or coal, cannot be classified as a thermal power plant. A thermal power plant uses the heat from deep within the earth, combined with water to create steam, which then powers the turbines. ...
Asked in Energy
Is solar energy the same as thermal energy?
No. Solar power is not the same as thermal energy. Thermal energy is the random kinetic motion of microscopic molecule. Solar power on the other hand is derived from electromagnetic waves. For example: lets take a plant. If you put a plant in a dark room and heat the plant, the plant will still die even though it is supplied with thermal energy. However if you now add light(of specific wavelengths) the plant will thrive. So the plant can discern the difference...
