EDIT: Another word for thermal energy is heat!
I'm afraid the original answer is somewhat out of date!
The term, 'thermal energy' is obsolete, and has been replaced by the term, 'internal energy'. 'Heat' is no longer thought of as being energy, but the process of transferring energy from a higher temperature to a lower temperature.
