In NGU, EXP, aka experience points, are the currency used to buy various permanent upgrades to improve players abilities.

NGU energy and magic power, quantity (cap) and regeneration speed (bars) require a balance, and this balance can vary depending each player's game play. As suggested in the in-game help, start by getting some energy speed. Around boss 17 or so, you should be able to gain enough EXP points to also buy some energy power. See also the newbie guide for more details.
