Firstly, I've not read (or possibly don't recall) the previous post but seems to me I'm missing some context.
KPI are meant to illustrate the program/orgs progress. They are (if selected correctly) to drive behaviours in employees that the org desires. Financial accountability, ensuring we are helping our customers, not taking in due risk, etc. I'd suggest selecting KPIs and Metrics that drive what you want to instill in your business and that will drive performance.
I literally, just published a blog post on this today. Check it out http://beaconize.com/2016/03/10/metri... The key is to be careful on what KPi/Metrics you select and insure that they drive the behaviours you want to champion. I'd suggest not to solely focus on efficiency type things and to get a balance view (financial, risk, quality, and satisfaction).
Honestly not sure why you'd want to measure energy efficiency? Cost per engineer? None of these "KPI" really resonate with me and I would never have an executive discussion about them. I would however have a discussion on the financial, risk, quality, and satisfaction of the hardware assets (by each class).
Just some food for thought. I'll try to find the other post you mentioned and see if i can provide additional context (especially if it was my answer).
