Energy on Earth The Sun provides most of the energy on Earth. Plants absorb light energy from the Sun and use it to make food stored as chemical energy. The energy stored in plants in turn provides the energy for other living things on Earth. The Sun’s energy also provides warmth, powers the water cycle, and makes wind. Fossil Fuel Energy from the Sun also provided energy to prehistoric plants and animals.
