A high drive dog will risk anything to get what they want (food/prey/toy/praise), they will race through the bushes instead of around. Amount of drive is how relentlessly a dog will pursue something.

High energy is not related to drive, dogs can be high drive and low energy, although its nice to pair the two depending if you are involved with work or not. When I think high energy I think of the dog who chases his tail, there is no goal or purpose its just to drain energy.
This is what I think of when I think of the two as well. Haus is a lazy dog for the most part, until you pull out a toy. Then, he will do anything and everything in his power to get said toy. I don't consider him to have high drive because eventually he will give up if he can't get it, but it does take him an hour or two before he'll stop trying. I consider that to be more motivation than drive. But, I'm far from an expert on this topic. I'm interested in knowing what the difference is between the two as well.
