How does ADP convert to ATP?

When one phosphate group is removed by breaking a phosphoanhydride bond in a process called hydrolysis, energy is released, and ATP is converted to adenosine diphosphate (ADP). Likewise, energy is also released when a phosphate is removed from ADP to form adenosine monophosphate (AMP).

In respect to this, can ADP be used for energy?

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the main energy carrier molecule used living things. The difference between ATP and ADP, or adenosine diphosphate, is found in the number of phosphate groups, 3 for ATP and 2 for ADP.

How is energy stored and released by ATP and ADP?

The ATP molecule can store energy in the form of a high energy phosphate bond joining the terminal phosphate group to the rest of the molecule. In this form, energy can be stored at one location, then moved from one part of the cell to another, where it can be released to drive other biochemical reactions.
