We know these devices as capacitors, but they work by storing charge ELECTROSTATICALLY. Although they still didn’t know all that much about electricity, they now had methods of storing and generating electricity, but it was still a research tool (and a parlor trick).

Today, we can convert energy
from many different forms into
usable electricity:

•Coal
•Wood
•Nuclear fission
•Oil
•Water
•Solar
•Wind

But the main problem for electricity
is how we store and transport it from
the generation so ... See more
