Default [Energy Reserve]

What would the limitation value be on an ability that can only be powered by an Energy Reserve?

How big is the default Energy Reserve, and are their other abilities around that can use both FP and Energy?

If abilities can only ever use one of either FP or Energy, and characters have an ER about the size of a normal FP pool (so ~10 points) it's not really worth anything. If the Energy Reserves are smaller unless you buy them up, it's a limitation, as it is if other powers can use both FP and Energy as the user wishes (or perhaps the more flexible power has to take an enhancement).

It is canonically -5% on top of the value of Costs Fatigue per GURPS Powers (p. 25).
