    Energy is carried by the electric and magnetic fields

    Explanation:

    Electromagnetic waves consist of electric fields and magnetic fields which oscillate perpendicularly to the direction of propagation of the waves (for this reason, they are called transverse waves).

    Electric fields and magnetic fields both possess energy, and this energy is carried through space by the wave. Note that electromagnetic waves do not carry matter, but only energy (in fact, they do not have mass). Moreover, electromagnetic waves are the only type of waves that do not need a medium to propagate: in fact, they can also travel through a vacuum.
