Not that much, I imagine... unless you spend a lot of time looking at your home screens. Using an app like OS Monitor, you can see how much cpu each process uses, and unless you are looking at the home screen, a live wallpaper uses 0% cpu in the background.

And in comparison with the energy used by the display itself whilst it is on, it is probably negligible. It depends of course on the demands of the live wallpaper chosen.
