Where Does Thermal Energy Come from?

Answer

Thermal energy is energy that is derived from the thermodynamic relations of a temperature system. Most of this energy is derived from the sun, fuelled by the thermo-nuclear furnace that is the sun. Geothermal energy on the other hand results from the earth's core, which heats water forming geysers and hot springs that can be used in production of energy.
