Low resistance.
Think of Ohm's law. Voltage drop is directly proportional to
resistance. The higher the resistance, the higher the voltage drop,
and the less voltage that is available for the load. Think of
conductor resistance as a resistance in series with the load.
Also, higher conductor resistance means more power lost, going
to heating the conductors. The "line loss" formula is P=I2R. The
greater the resistance, the greater the electrical power being
converted into thermal power heating the conductors.

### What is the relationship between the resistance of a material and the amount of thermal energy that is released when electrons move through the conductor?

It isn't QUITE as simple as that. The relevant formula is:
(power dissipated) = (current squared) x (resistance)So, the
amount of energy dissipated not only depends on the resistance, but
also on the current (that's what is measured in amperes). For
example, if there is no current, there will be no power
dissipated.
The formula is about POWER; to get ENERGY, which is what you
asked for, you need to multiply power by time.
