Default Project- Tau energy sources

Title says it all- has anyone ever discovered what type of energy source other than Fusion generators?

I think there was a fairly detailed description of a Tau power generator in one of the Kill Team novels...

Everyone in DoW has plasma generators. I think it was more of a gameplay thing that a fluff thing- I mean, Necrons are supposed to have some impossible to understand mysterious power source, yet they build plasma generators just like all the other races.

Ah, oki, I only play as Tau...
Hmm, I assume that the book would be the place to look... I'll have a look on Wiki and see if I can find anything.

The Sho'aun'or'es Generator, as described in both Kill Team and Fire Warrior.

In appearance, starship-grade generators are enormous, hollowed out 'stacks' containing a turbulent liquid-gaseous substance with floating particles of light and energy inside (similar in description and function to a green-colored tokamok generator).

In practice, it's a safe and effectively unlimited power supply used in almost all Tau technology that requires electrical energy to function; ranging from starships to Hammerheads to Crisis Suits to Drones to Line Warrior backpack-mounted powercell-chargers. The Sho'aun'or'es requires no described recharging (though it's likely it only needs its fuel replenished every 10+ years if it is indeed a Fusion Reactor), and is only limited by its maximum power output at any one time (kinda like Supreme Commander's Energy Resource, hehe).
