In this paper, we obtain some upper and lower bounds for the general extended energy of a graph. As an application, we obtain few bounds for the (edge) Zagreb energy of a graph. Also, we deduce a relation between Zagreb energy and edge-Zagreb energy of a graph $G$ with minimum degree $\delta \ge2$. A lower and upper bound for the spectral radius of the edge-Zagreb matrix is obtained. Finally, we give some methods to construct (edge) Zagreb equienergetic graphs and show that there are (edge) Zagreb equienergetic graphs of order $n\ge 9$.
