Electricity is the set of physical phenomena associated with the presence and flow of electric charge. Electricity gives a wide variety of well-known effects, such as lightning, static electricity, electromagnetic induction and electrical current. In addition, electricity permits the creation and reception of electromagnetic radiation such as radio waves.

In an environmental context, "electricity" refers to a form of energy that is produced and used for various purposes. It is produced through a variety of methods including thermal, hydro, wind, solar, and nuclear power generation. Electricity is used for lighting, heating, cooling, transportation, and a wide range of other applications.

Examples of environmental impacts of electricity generation and use include:

Due to these environmental impacts, there is growing interest in developing and promoting sustainable and renewable forms of electricity generation.
