B Has thermal conductivity any relationship with energy?

    More thermal conductivity means there's more energy?...

    This is a very vague question. Can you expand a bit on what it is that you are trying to figure out?

    No. You could have a high thermal conductivity object at the bottom of a hill and an otherwise identical low conductivity object at the top. The one at the top would have higher energy due to gravity.
