Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In terms purely of calories, potentially fairly high. You can synthesize methane and ammonia from air, given energy, and you can combine those to make amino acids and fatty acids. Theoretically, all of this can be done adiabatically.

In practice, that's science fiction. But so is energy too cheap to meter.
