A lump of coal is not energy, just decomposed, squashed plant life in
the form of (mostly) carbon.
It only has the /potential /to give off energy when heat is introduced.
OK, this could degenerate into a philosophical discussion, so to keep it
slightly on tagging:
Would you tag a reservoir at the head of a hydro-electric dam as a
reservoir or power?
Would you describe a gas tank as power or a tank filled with gas?
