If we have a static electric charge, it generates an electric field. If that static electric charge is accelerating, it generates an electromagnetic field.

What about if the electric charge is moving with uniform velocity? Is the field thus generated an electic field or an electromagnetic field?

And what about the energy of the field? When an accelerating electric charge slows and moves at a uniform velocity, where does the energy of acceleration of the electromagnetic field go? Likewise when a moving electic charge comes to a stop, is there any field energy associated with the movement which is dissipated and where does it go?
