The organelle responsible for producing energy in cells is the mitochondria. Through a process called cellular respiration, mitochondria generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which serves as the main energy currency in cells.

In eukaryotic cells, the organelles that do this are called 'mitochondria.' However, there are other pathways to create energy that exist outside of mitochondria and take place in other parts of a cell. To learn more, look up 'glycolysis'.
