Converting ordinary steam

I like getting my solar from thermal solar instead of panels. What's the best way to convert regular steam to EU (or to IC2e steam) without using Gregtech?

Railcraft has a multiblock steam turbine that can create good amounts of EU for steam, and the newer versions of IC2 have a WIP converter of IC2 steam to normal, but I think that's the only cross steam compat that exists.
145 Mods isn't too many. 9 types of copper and 8 types of tin aren't too many. 3 types of coffee though?

I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you read was not what I meant.

You know what the name of the IC2 block is?

The railcraft thing basically consumes steel as fuel, it might as well be removed from the game X(

It's called the Steam Repressurizer, but it's not got a recipe yet if you're planning to use it in survival.

I'm missing the obvious solution here: Add a line to make the fluid heat generator consume steam.

Or not, because all the energy generation is apparently hardcoded :/

solution to the solution, Minetweaker has hooks in the semifluid generator. No crazy IC2steam contraption but it'll do.
