Hello,

I think, as the Capacitors are connected in series , you will have to calculate the equivalent capacitance(Ce = .5 Ci). As a result, you get the Same Stored Energy .
In your problem Capacitance Changes when you Connect two Capacitors. I think this is the answer and no energy is lost.

Thanks
