Electrical energy

Electrical energy is a form of energy related to the position of an electric charge in an electric field. The electrical energy of a charge Q situated at the electric potential V equals to the product QV. If V is a potential difference, the same expression gives the energy transformed when the charge moves through the potential difference.

The production, distribution and use of electrical energy is normally called electric power.
