The sun is a huge mass of hydrogen gas and the temperature in it is extremely high.The sun may be considered a big thermonuclear furnace where hydrogen atoms are continously being fused into helium atoms.Mass is being lost during these fusion reactions and energy is being produced.Thus, the sun which gives us heat and light ,derives its energy from the fusion of hydrogen nuclei into helium nuclei,which is going on inside it,all the time.
The main nuclear fusion reaction taking place in the sun which releases a tremendous amount of energy is the fusion of 4 hydrogen atom nuclei to form a bigger nucleus of helilum atom.
The total  energy produced by the fusion of hydrogen into helium is tremendous.All this energy is released in the form of heat and light.It is this energy which makes the sun shine and give us heat and light.Thus,nuclear fusion reactions of hydrogen are the source of sun's energy.
