Depending on the Energy Allocation which you have made on the social engineering screen, all the energy you produce is divided among three priorities: Economy, Labs, and Psych.

Economy[ | ]

Energy allocated to your Economy is added, as energy credits, to your Energy Reserves, which function as your treasury for monetary Transactions.

Labs[ | ]

Energy allocated to Labs is used to conduct scientific research. The more energy you allocate to Labs, the quicker you will make technological Breakthroughs.

Psych[ | ]

Energy diverted to Psych is used to improve the quality of life your citizens experience. Every two units of energy diverted to Psych will create an additional Talent in that base.
