Energy analysis on converted steel storage containers?

Many of the manufacturers insulate and add air conditioners to these units.  They are used as offices, school classrooms, conditioned storage buildings, mountain homes, etc.

Anyone ever done an energy analysis on one?

Is this even possible, to rate one of these units?  Some of the units produced are insulated with some very expensive foam and are extremely labor intensive, to the tune of over $10,000.00 to the buyer on a 40' unit.
