When do we use "power" and when "energy"? I often ask myself: What is energy and what is power?
One game developer company asked me to translate their browser game into English and edit some of the work that has already been done. The game is about space battles, building fleets, expanding your empire by conquering other planets.
The buildings in their universe use solar power, but in Russian it's written as "Энергия", so theoretically it should be energy. However, I'm not sure if energy us the right word. What about the difference between "energy generation" and "power production", and "energy consumption" vs "power consumption"? Also they have "Solar satellites" which are ships that generate or produce power/energy.
What word should I use? I'm interested in understanding the difference between using "power" or "energy" in this specific context and possibly in general.
