Latent energy as far as I remember

This is referred to as conservation of energy

The latent heat energy levels refers to the heat absorbed during a change phase at a constant pressure and temperature.

latent heat of fusion tells us about the amount of energy that must be taken off from water at 00C to fuse it into ice at 00C . Actually this in this phase temperature remains constant and this energy is (either latent heat of fusion or latent heat of vaporization is the potential energy which is possessed by the states by their virtue.

The energy which must be transferred to or from a sample of water in order to change it's state is called the Latent Energy or Latent Heat - for example Latent Heat of Evaporation or Latent Heat of Freezing.

Latent heat is the heat required to achieve a change of phase - for example, to melt ice and convert it to water. As to the relationship with potential energy, latent heat IS a type of potential energy.

The energy supplied during latent heat is used to break/weaken intermolecular bonds and NOT to increase the kinetic energy of the molecules.

latent heat of vapourisation is the heat energy required to change 1 kg of a liquid to gas at atmospheric pressure at its boiling point where latent heat of fusion is the amount of heat energy required to change 1 kg of solid to liquid at its melting point so that is why latent heat of vapourisation higher than latent heat of fusion.

The latent heat of vaporisation of water requires more energy. This is because on melting, the intermolecular bonds in water are only weakened whereas on boiling, the bonds are completely broken, which requires a larger amount of energy.
