The ME Network needs energy to function. This energy is measured in AE per tick.
To power your network, you can either connect a Vibration Chamber directly, or use an Energy Acceptor to connect energy sources from compatible mods.
Your network will have some inherent energy storage, which can be increased by connecting energy cells.
To see the current energy statistics for your network, right-click any part of it with a Network Tool.
The Energy Acceptor converts energy from external systems into AE and stores it in the network.
The following energy systems are supported:
|Energy System||Conversion Rate|
|Forge Energy / Redstone Flux||2 FE = 1 AE|
Energy Acceptor (Shapeless)
Stores up to 200,000 AE. They do not accept power directly, but are used to add additional power storage to an already existing ME Network.
store AE energy up to 1.6 million units. They do not accept power directly but are used to add additional power storage to an already existing ME Network.
Creative Energy Cell contain infinite AE energy and can be used to provide power without needing to generate it.
They can only be spawned in Creative Mode.
A modified furnace capable of generating AE Power instead of smelting ores. When placed on an ME Network it will charge Energy Cell or power other Network Devices.
The Vibration Chamber will burn almost any solid burnable fuel for power. It will slow, or accelerate the burn depending on how much power it is able to store vs what is wasted. Generates between 1 and 10 AE/t depending on its burn speed.
Sharing Power Between Networks
A part designed to share energy between two ME Networks without sharing anything else, also used to craft Fluix ME Glass Cable.
