I find it strange when people use this phrase, since energy can't be produced, only converted to another form of energy

Isn't producing usually converting one thing to another?

(I guess "elektryczną" is missing?)

I agree. Adding 'elektriczną' makes this about a specific form of energy thus implying conversion. In my opinion just 'energia' is a too abstract concept to be used with this verb. But I guess it's a matter of personal preference

Why is the present continuous "are producing" rejected?

It's in the database, so it should have worked.
