Information and ideas:
As background for the topic "water as a means of energy storage" and "water in power generation", which is also important for thermal power engines, such as the steam engine. Even without going into thermodynamics, it is clear where steam engines get their energy from: The superheated steam contains a great deal of energy. Given the same volume, this corresponds to a high pressure that can move a piston.
