Electrical Energy


Electricity is the focus of The Electricity Forum, which is dedicated to the exchange of policy and technical information about Electrical Energy matters. We deal with issues in common to electric utilities and large industrial, commercial and institutional power consumers. We publish electrical energy magazines, electrical handbooks and electrial training conferences. Browse our site and learn all about electricity facts, definitions, explanations, and electrical equipment supplies and technologies that help to make modern life possible.

Our Electricity pages offer lots of education about electricity for homework projects and lessons about electric power: subjects like current, magnetism, static electricity, and electricity subjects. See our Electricity Pages.
