PE is the potential to create energy.
We carry such potential in all our batteries. Here chemical PE is converted into useful electrical energy to light our bulbs and turn on our electric motors. Hybrid cars move when the PE of their driving batteries is changed into kinetic energy.
We also carry the potential in our fuels for creating useful energy. Petrol and Diesel chemical PE is converted into motion or electrical energy for our vehicles and generators.
In general, society carries the potential energy about; so that it can be converted into useful energy on demand.
