You would have to start by defining energy groups that contain relevant 
sets of molecules (see manual). Even once you've got them, the 
group-wise energies won't mean much of anything. Every observable is 
dependent on the configuration microstate, and unless you can estimate 
the relative population of different microstates to estimate a free
