Superman Red has all the powers of the normal Superman including super-strength, flight, heat-vision, etc. Beyond his usual powers, Superman Red can also phase through solid objects, see different spectrum of light and energy and power himself through electricity. He could also transform back into Clark Kent.
When in Clark Kent form, Superman Red has no powers. He also presumably retains Superman's weakness to magic and Kryptonite.
After the Sun was put out during the Final Night event, Superman's powers were rendered practically inert. Even after the sun was re-lit by Parallax, Superman's powers remained nonexistent until they began to re-manifest in bizarre ways, namely causing him to change into an energy being. This is best explained by him apparently absorbing ambient energies in the electromagnetic field of Earth.
But, when an attempt on his life was made, it split him into two beings nicknamed Superman Red and Superman Blue. Superman Red was carefree and lacked any seriousness. The two beings were re-merged into one at the end of the Millennium Giants event when Kismet combined them as a favor for stopping the giants through self-sacrifice.
