I'm a little confused on the concept behind emf. What is the difference between emf and E

emf is another way to mean the cell potential. They are the same thing.

Remember also that emf represents the maximum potential difference.

I agree with Alvin, emf stands for electromotive force, which is the same as E, the cell potential difference.
