Electrical energy

Electrical energy is energy newly derived from electrical potential energy. When loosely used to describe energy absorbed or delivered by an electrical circuit (for example, one provided by an electric power utility), “electrical energy” refers to the energy that has been converted from electrical potential energy. This energy is supplied by the combination of electric current and electrical potential that is delivered by the circuit.

When this energy has been converted to another type of energy, it ceases to be electrical potential energy. Thus, all electrical energy is potential before it is delivered to the end user. Once converted from potential energy, electrical energy can always be described as another type of energy (heat, light, motion, etc.).It is easy to transmit and use. Electrical energy is energy that is in charged particles in an electric field.
