If you want to see the energy efficiency of weapons check the link in my signature (either the Guide or you can click on one of the direct power level chart links). I have done extensive testing on this. Cannons are indeed much more energy efficient than beam weapons.

This data is also taken into account with my Starship Weapons Calculator program, if you want to try out some different weapon combinations.
