The energy of a compact binary system at the fifth post-Newtonian order is explicitly computed in the post-Minkowskian approximation by means of the Effective Field Theory approach. This result allows to determine, for the first time beyond the test particle limit, one coefficient of the energy expression for binary point masses on circular orbit as a function of the orbital angular frequency.
