Energy - a unit of measure
The capacity or power to do work, such as the capacity to move an object (of a given mass) by the application of force. Energy can exist in a variety of forms, such as electrical, mechanical, chemical, thermal, or nuclear, and can be transformed from one form to another. It is measured by the amount of work done, usually in joules or watts.

If I recall correctly, isn't gravity linked to the higgs-boson? Or, is said linkage still inconclusive?

Antimatter and matter coming together annihilates each, it doesn't produce jack all. As far as I know there is no such thing as pure energy except arguably kinetic energy which is purely conceptual. Even plasma which is the most energetic state of matter is really just superheated ionized particles. Heat is light. Magnetic fields are probably propagated by electron motion. Gravity is probably a curvature of space-time. There is no ethereal energy somewhere out in the physical universe just hanging around disembodied.
Also, we know for sure that gravity effects light, which is theoretically massless, so if it does that, then I'm assuming that all things are effected by gravity. Would enough photons gathered together have a gravitational pull? I doubt it. 0+0+0+0 ad nauseum still equals zero and mass seems to be the thing that propagates gravitational effects.
