  • Now, in the 21st century, there are many ways electricity can be generated. But is it possible to generate electricity with thunder strike?. The clouds are charged with both +ve and -ve charges. When thuder lightning is formed, the -ve charges are present. They are attracted to +ve charged nature in the ground such as tree, tall buildings, electrical wire poles, and etc............Some buildings attach a +ve charged rod where when the thunder strike hits, it wont hit the building but hits the rod; and the rod connects to the ground and which will eventually bring the high current volumed stike to the ground and cause no harm to the bulding . From this method , I know that the +ve charged rods attracts the thunder and can be used to obtain electricity from thunder strike. 

    But the problem is that i could't find any medium that can act as an electricity bank that can store electricity obtained from thunder struck.

    Fell free to share if you gather any information regarding generating electricity obtained from thunder struck.

  • This cannot be harvested directly as electricity can and could also damage equipment. Once captured, the energy would have to be stored and released when needed, as is done with renewable energies such as wind and solar power.
