I believe I am correct in saying that there is no direct correlation between volts and celsius.

Volt is an electrical unit that equates to electrical pressure, much the same as a higher head of water has a higher pressure.

Celsius is essentially the same as the previously used centigrade but defined in a different manner and is a measure of temperature.

"The joule (  /ˈdʒuːl/ or /ˈdʒaʊl/); symbol J) is a derived unit of energy or work in the International System of Units. It is equal to the energy expended (or work done) in applying a force of one newton through a distance of one metre (1 newton metre or N•m), or in passing an electric current of one ampere through a resistance of one ohm for one second. It is named after the English physicistJames Prescott Joule (1818–1889).

joule = volt × coulomb
or
J = V×C"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joule

As it takes a certain amount of energy to raise say one gram of water through one degree Celsius and this energy can be measured in joules then volts and Celsius do have something in common.  Perhaps this was what you were referring to?

It is possible to express temperature in terms of electronvolts ie 1 ev = 11,605°K it is also possible to convert electronvolts to Joules ie 1 electron volt = 1.60217646 × 10^-19 joules so with a little arithmetic a conversion between temperature and energy would seem to be possible

1 Calorie raises 1cm3 of water 1 °C.

1 Volt Amp Second = 1 watt second = 1 Joule = 0.239 Calories

1 Coulomb Volt is 1 joule if that helps.
