What field am I describing

  1. Apr 12, 2015 #1
    I know there are many types of energy and different fields study different types, but is there a field that broadly studies energy transport and conversion? Or a field that studies what energy is at a fundamental level and how it flows? I would think it's under the area of statistical mechanics or something like that, but can someone give me a more specific name?

    I realize that this is an insanely broad question but I was just wondering.

    I meant, is there a field of current research on this topic?
