An explicit solution for a moving screw dislocation in a piezoelectric bimaterial is given by means of complex variables. The electroelastic fields and forces acting on the moving dislocation are obtained in closed form. As special cases, solutions for a moving screw dislocation in a piezoelectric half-plane with a free or rigid surface are obtained explicitly.
