    Whilst it is possible to produce motors powered by high voltage and low current characteristic of static electricity, this is not economic. The few practical applications of static electricity include xerographic printing, the electrostatic air filter, and the high voltage Van de Graaff generator.

    And electrostatic precipitators used in smoke stacks and some room air filtering systems.
