The only reason to run Torp consoles over energy is if your energy damage output is really low. Like if you're running all power to AuX, or if you have only/mostly projectile weapons slotted.

For an escort with DHCs and CRF/CSV, and weapon power at 125+, there is no reason not to run all energy consoles. Maybe you will do one or two % more damage against a completely un-shielded target, but you'll loose 10% against anything that has shields.

Edit: Using tac slots for universal console is almost always fail. The only place in game damage is not king, is if you're a healer in PvP, or if you have a non-lethal approach to Transport Defence.
