I can't lie. I kinda want this. But that's only because I would totally abuse it lol. I'm an energy whore. I usually end up converting like, 10k oil into energy constantly for scans, jams and teleports.
While more means to energy seems great, think about those who already do so well with what little they have now... Do you really want to give them more means to easily scan, jam and teleport units during a war. Energy ends up being one of the most essential factors in long drawn out wars. Making a precious commodity more abundant means more pain from those who use tons of it.
