    Background: With the rest of the world aiming for power from water, atoms and the sun, Denmark is going to nature. Film taken at a Copenhagen aquarium shows experiments taking place to tap the electricity from an eel.

    Electric eels, it seems, really do produce electricity - and in a big way.

    According to the aquarium authorities the eel in film is capable of producing 800 volts. It certainly had no trouble in lighting up neon signs.

    The angrier the eel gets, the greater the power it produces. Bringing it out of water makes it really sizzle.
