It means a positive charge of 1 couloumb will require 1 joule energy to go from lower to higher potential
In electrical it merely shows the potential of the electric charges to flow in conductor from higher potential to lower potential
this is the reason we always refer it as potential difference
as its the difference in two potentials at the two terminals which make the electricity flow
