Ask Dr. Universe: Will electricity ever run out?

Dr-Universe-230PULLMAN, Wash. – Scientists could see and feel electricity in nature long before they discovered how to make it. Maybe you’ve seen it during a powerful electrical storm or felt a little shock from static electricity.

To find out if we’ll ever run out of it, I visited my friend Chen-Ching Liu. Liu is an electrical engineer who researches energy here at Washington State University.

Liu and a team of all kinds of scientists and engineers are working to make sure we have renewable energy for the future. Part of their work includes designing and building smart cities.
