Why have separate sections on “energy” and “climate change”?

Concerns over anthropogenic climate change are largely (though not at all exclusively) about humanity's use of energy for eating, cooling, heating, and producing (and a few other 'ings).

If that's the case, why have a separate section of for energy?

The main reason is that energy sources cause a range of environmental challenges (and social, political, economic, etc. challenges), and not just the challenge of climate change.

Consequently, while most links under the extensive Climate change pages have something to do with the use of energy, the websites linked to under the Energy pages are strongly focused on the energy resource per se.
