In 1600, William Gilbert coined the term 'electricity', in 1759 Benjamin Franklin discovered lightning was electrical, and in 1800 Alessandro Volta produced an early electric battery.
These 3 men who played a vital part in one thing we couldn't live without, electricity. Electricity is a form of energy which gives power to many different areas of our life.
From cooking to operating machinery and even the light in our homes, so many daily activities rely on the power electricity generates. This power is mainly generated using giant steam turbines that can use fossil fuels, nuclear, biomass, geothermal, or solar energy to generate power. Some sources of electricity, like burning coal, can release nasties into the atmosphere adding to air pollution, while others like wind farms or solar energy are renewable, sustainable, and much better for the environment.
