We consider main criteria’s for the formation and maintenance of the global electric circuit (GEC) in the atmospheres of planets in the Solar System. We estimate from the basic principles atmospheric conductivity profile and analyze the possible existence of GEC on Mars. Our model shows the absence of fixed GEC on Mars and possibility of current flow through the circuit from extended and powerful generator.
