Utilization and conversion of electrostatic energy is still an essentially unexplored area of physics and engineering, although there are compelling reasons to believe that such utilizatization and conversion will be of considerable significance in the future. This paper presents a brief discussion of the following three subjects associated with electrostatic energy and its utilization: (a) the earth's electric field as a natural source of electrostatic energy, (b) generation of electrostatic energy, and (c) conversion and utilization of electrostatic energy by means of electrostatic motors.
