Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think your specifications for energy, capital, knowledge, land, and labor are on target or on the right track.  But unless you do something radically different with them, you might just be heading back to the standard, neoclassical production function , which is:

Y = f(A,K,L),  

meaning output (whatever that might be) is some function of inputs, which in the simplistic, textbook case is just two things -- capital and labor -- mixed together with something called A, technology (or knowledge), but changes or broadening the inputs to include other categories such as expanded definitions of land or objective capital or different kinds of labor in no way changes the fundamental framework of the neoclassical model of Outputs = f(Inputs).
