It is possible to build a very simple high-voltage generator which has no moving parts and is powered by the energy of falling water. By dribbling water through some old soup cans, several thousand volts magically appear. The magic lies in the fact that water (as well as everything else!) is made of vast quantities of positive and negative electric charge in perfect balance. It's not too hard to cause an imbalance. Water normally has zero net electrical charge because it contains equal and opposite charges. "Kelvin's Thunderstorm" is a gravity-powered charge un-canceller.

All you got to do is,connect those spark points to some big ol battery/capacitor bank and off you go.Free power...
Although I am not sure if this idea works exactly as its presented to us in th YT vid,running water does have the potential to generate electrical energy.
Pretty much anything that moves has the potential to generate electricity.
Ahh,the benefits of living in the electromagnetic universe....
