    Available energy in thermodymanics is the amount of energy in the system that can actaully do something, or cause change. Random, evenly distributed heat is not available energy, as it cannot be used. But if a system is hotter in one place than another, a heat pump could be used to produce useful energy until the system reached equilibrium - the same temperature everywhere.
