Expert Answer:

Electric Potential at a point is the amount of work done in bringing a unit positive charge from infinity to that point. ( Infinity refers to a very very large distance!)

Electric potential energy= charge x potential at that point.

Which means - Electric potential energy of a charge at a point is the work done in bringing that charge from infinity to that point.
