From the Energy page, you are given four rows of information:
Energy Consumption per capita: This indicates how many watts each individual citizen is using. Useful for judging the impact that energy conservation legislation may have on your population.
Energy Consumption: The total wattage your nation uses per day.
Energy Generated: The total wattage your power plants output per day. Ideally this number should be higher than your daily energy consumption.
Surplus/Deficit: If this is a positive number, it's the surplus power your nation generates on a daily basis. If it's a negative number, it's the amount of power your nation requires but isn't receiving.
The basic power plants require fuel in order to operate, such as coal, oil, or natural gas. You can allocate fuel to your power plants under the Logistics panel. The advanced power plants run on renewable resources, such as wind, water, nuclear, and solar. These power plants do not require refueling, but have fairly high costs.
