I cannot say what they are referring to without much fuller context. What sort of contract is this? For example, it might be a maintenance and operation contract for the public lighting of a town, in which case "energy" refers to the electricity which the contractor will purchase from an electric power supplier. If it is a contract for maintenance of an entire building, then it may well cover other forms of energy (emergency diesel generator, gas for heating, etc.).

Thank you! Actually I know it is energy, but the difficult part is to find a suitable Chinese word for it. So, does it mean " the complete installation energy"?
