A Central Termoelétrica de Sines localiza-se a cerca de 8 quilómetros a Sul da cidade de Sines, junto à costa, no lugar de São Torpes. É uma central a carvão, construída na década de 80, integrada no plano de construção da zona industrial de Sines com o objetivo de responder à crescente procura de energia e à redução da dependência do petróleo. Foi construída e continua a ser explorada pela EDP, sendo ainda atualmente a central a carvão de maior potência no país, 1 256 MW distribuídos por 4 grupos de 314 MW.

Os grupos injetam a energia produzida na rede primária de 400 kV, com exceção do grupo 1 que injeta na rede de 150 kV diretamente ligada ao abastecimento da zona Sul do país. A potência máxima emitida era inicialmente de 298 MW, após a instalação do sistema de dessulfuração passou para 295 MW.
