# Intuitive understanding of standard electrode potential

I have read many books on standard electrode potential and they define the term in various ways but I just can’t seem to get an intuitive idea of it.

$$\ce{Cu^2+ + 2e- <=> Cu}$$

Standard electrode potential, $E= 0.34\ \mathrm{V}$

Does this mean that when $1\ \mathrm{C}$ of charge passes from the hydrogen half cell to copper half cell, $0.34\ \mathrm{J}$ of energy is released?

$$\ce{Zn^2+ + 2e- <=> Zn}$$

Standard electrode potential, $E= -0.76\ \mathrm{V}$

Does this mean that when $1\ \mathrm{C}$ of charge passes from the hydrogen half cell to zinc half cell, $0.76\ \mathrm{J}$ is absorbed?
