It depends on how you define "energy."  We generally thing of energy as an immediate effect which in many drinks is caused by caffine.  You can also think of energy in the form of calories.  Many of us over eat which means calories are stored instead of used as an energy source.  The calories in soft drinks come mostly from either sugar or high fructose corn syrup.

This answer is right on the money............now energy drinks are causing problems with teens drinking too much of it.  I tasted a sip, I don't care for the taste.
