It has to do with virtual particles, but you'd have to study some quantum electrodynamics to understand better what they are. Feynman himself actually wrote an excellent book on QED for laymen, if you're interested you can get it - it's not very costly. Don't remember if it addresses vacuum energy, though.

Here is something new in the Casimir effect: Turning virtual particles into real photons:
