I think the deal there is that a meteorite really brought down the plane but the government thinks it was a terrorist attack. This stuff is written by PR hacks so they may be somewhat off in describing the premise. The original description for Revolution said that all forms of energy stopped working which isn't the case since people are still alive and fires still ignite.
I think they mean all forms of electricity. Fire is another element. The supernatural though is capable of making things that must work not work and things that don't work or shouldn't work, work. See King's 'The Langoliers' for fire that doesn't work. But let's face it, JJ doesn't know what he's doing or not doing, so.. as evidenced by Lost and Fringe.
