WHAT'S WATT: The Electricity channel back on your screen for Season 3!

In our WHAT’S WATT video series we discuss everything there is to discuss about electricity, from those little neurons in your brain to today’s biggest hydroelectric stations. We talk about energy, transmission lines and new emerging technologies. If it has to do with electricity, we got it covered!

Thank you, electricity lovers!

A big thank you to all our followers: it encourages us to continue the adventure of sharing our passion for electricity with all generations!

Season 3: watt’s new?

The season runs from January to December 2023, with one episode broadcasted every month.

Frédéric pays tribute to an unjustly unrecognized genius of electricity: the scientist that invented electric cars, the endoscope or sparkling swords made for theatre plays, 100 years before the making of Star Wars!

In this new season we are covering some topics such as energy storage, and how to avoid power cuts. And we also go back to electricity basics: how electric charges flow and what objects best conduct them.
