I'm using rules below to achieve that so it could be applied dynamically to whole worksheets

=INDIRECT("$D$"&ROW())/INDIRECT("$A$"&ROW())>=90%
=INDIRECT("$D$"&ROW())/INDIRECT("$A$"&ROW())>=70%
=INDIRECT("$D$"&ROW())/INDIRECT("$A$"&ROW()) < 70%

See attached with formulae to get Threshold and Remaining values based on input of Capacity and Used values and Conditional Format for the colouring.
