In brief: Depends on cause.
There are multiple reasons for loss of energy including depression, endocrine problems (hypothyroidism), chronic low grade infections (like lyme disease)and some autoimmune disorders and connective tissue disorders, and neurologigic problems such as ms(multiple sclerosis) and lou gherig's disease (als).
Life stressors can do the same thing. Most require medical evaluation to begin with.

In brief: Rest and good health
Best way to increase energy is adequate sleep each night, a healthy diet, and adequate exercise.
Use of stimulants such as caffeine for energy is transient and you are better off with lifestyle adjustments to increase energy.

In brief: Fix the cause
Lack of energy can come from a variety of situations.
Dehydration (not drinking at least 5 cups of water a day), lack of sleep/poor sleep, skipping meals, stress, sleep apnea/snoring, chronic sinus problems, caffeine withdrawal, chronic illness (such as anemia) or allergies can cause low energy. See your doctor.
