Do all formations of vesicles (pino,endo, and receptor mediated endocytosis) require energy?

Do vesicles going between layers of the golgi, or even excretory vesicles require energy to form/bud off and to fuse?

all formations of vesicles to bud or fuse require energy.

From a biochemistry book: the budding of vesicles to the ER require ATP. The transitional movement to the Golgi requires GTP, calcium binding to ATP, and cytosolic factors.

Hope it helps!:)
