Enthalpy of fusion/vaporization/sublimation to a plasma?

I may be grossly generalizing the principle, but is there a way to calculate the energy needed to transform a solid/liquid/gas into plasma? Information is easily found on enthalpy of fusion/vaporization/sublimation, but I couldn't find anything regarding transforming to the 4th state of matter. Is it not possible because of how plasma is "made" with the process being more complicated than applying heat?
