Energy Stored in Electrostatic Fields

Electrostatic energy is the energy necessary to establish a given charge distribution in space. In order to determine the energy stored in an assembly of charges, we determine the amount of work done by an external source to assemble the charges.

We consider a region in space with no charge initially and zero field intensity. Point charges are brought from infinity to specific points in that space, one by one.
