The major ones are hydroelectric, coal or gas fired, and nuclear. Less prevailent are geothermal and wind. There are other methods in experimental or 'home-scale' stages as well, such as wave power and solar.
The majority use turbines powered by steam or water to turn the generators. Each type can be easily looked up.
