    Whenever it gets the chance...that's how energy is, and there's too many types of energy..

    Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only converted between different forms.

    That is one of the most basic principles of science.

    Chemical energy stored in fossil fuels, wood etc. can be converted to heat by burning.

    Heat can be converted to mechanical or electrical energy

    Sunlight can be converted to heat or electrical energy.

      Mass is consumed in the process so it's just another "conversion", not energy from nothing.

    A lot is generated when I fart, that's for sure!
