You need to use the index groups feature - perhaps make_ndx and then 
g_energy -n. Certain groups, like "protein" and "solvent" can be 
implicitly created for you if your system is not too unusual, but for 
more elaborate needs, you should use make_ndx. Have a read of the 
relevant sections of the manual and g_energy -h and make_ndx -h.
