mitochondria
Explanation:
Mitochondria are the cells' power sources. They are distinct organelles with two membranes. Usually they are rod-shaped, however they can be round. The outer membrane limits the organelle. The inner membrane is thrown into folds or shelves that project inward. These are called "cristae mitochondriales". (http://cellbio.utmb.edu/cellbio/mitoch1.htm)
