Web Performance as a measure of sustainability in web design

I'm very interested in the issue of efficient web page design and
programming - as part of a larger "sustainability" metric for websites,
paralleling physical design industries. IMHO, one needs to address how an
web efficiency metric could be incorporated into an "Energy Star" type
indicator of how efficient a website is - and its consequent impact on
Internet energy and resource use.

How does efficiency map to energy use? Is there a way of incorporating this
into a framework measuring application performance?

In the long run, one would have a tool that could be inserted into a
boilerplate or framework
