‘Electric energy’ is a generic term that covers a wide range of phenomena resulting from the presence and flow of an electric load. These include a number of everyday phenomena, such as lightning, static electricity and the flow of electric current. Every day, we turn on/off a switch to activate/deactivate a lamp, the TV set or the elevator. On any of these occasions, an open electric circuit closes, thus electric current flowing through it and carrying energy.
Electric energy is now very important for economic growth. Electric energy in the modern world must be cost-effective, highly safe in respect of production and use, top quality and environmentally friendly.
