Im sorry If I havent answered in awhile Im simply watching where this leads instead of crushing it. Gonna pop in real quick to say, Koopa steam is simply a conduit, you need energy to heat up the water to push the turbine. The steam engine ran on coal, and wood. Solar reflects the suns heat into water to bring it to a boil to push the turbine, geothermal is perhaps the most effecient form of energy because the work has been done for us. Even Nuclear power heats up the water to push the turbine that turns our lights on.
The energy is in the heat, Steam is simply something that transfers it into force.
