Abstract. The concept of electromotive force appears in various electromagnetic applications in geophysical and astrophysical fluids. An overview of the electromotive force and its applications to the solar wind are discussed such as the electromotive force profile during the shock crossings and the observational tests for the mean-field model against the solar wind data. The electromotive force is being recognized as serving as a useful tool to construct a more complete picture of space plasma turbulence when combined with the energy spectra and helicity profiles.

Short summary
The concept of electromotive force appears in various electromagnetic applications in geophysical and astrophysical fluids. The electromotive force is being recognized as serving as a useful tool to construct a more complete picture of space plasma turbulence, and has a potential to test for the fundamental processes of dynamo mechanism in space.
