Greetings !

I don't really know about the energy comparison,
I'm pretty sure the efficiency is higher because
you don't use motors but the energy is abviously
probably greater. The primary problem with such
trains is not the energy but rather the costs of
the monorail which is extremely high (several million
dollars per mile for the train in Japan, for example).

Live long and prosper.
