Thanks for clearing up the terminology. Indeed energy is one of the most fundamental concepts in science and probably everyone has something in mind when they hear this word. This does however not mean that when scientists talk about energy they are understood by people not familiar with the specific field of science, and then it can seem as if the scientist is using some sort of jargon.

It is therefore important to also explain what you mean especially with words for which everyone has some sort of notion.
