energy

Here is my best explanation:

'power' is the definition.
('energy' can be a synonym of 'power')

'green party finally contrived' is the subsidiary indication.
'finally' indicates one should take the final letters.
'contrived' is an anagram indicator.
The final letter of 'party' is 'y'.
'green'+'y'='greeny'
'greeny' is an anagram of 'energy'.

'to get' is the link.
