suppose we have a superconductor speciment above Tc, and we put it in magnetic field. then we cool it down to below Tc, then a screening current is produced.

where does the electron get the energy to initiate the current on the first time?

Magnetic field. If not, then the energy it gets is from the energy you used to cool it down.
