Lipids have...

reduced compounds: lots of available energy

Lipids are reduced compounds meaning that they have lots of available energy. Their hydrophobic nature serves as a "good packing" material as well. Triacylglycerols are the main storage lipids and the primary storage form of lipids is body fat.
