Dark energy and mass-energy conservation

  1. Jan 18, 2010 #1

    If dark energy is a property of space-time, and more dark energy is created as space-time increases, and the additional dark energy accelerates the expansion of space-time, what is left of the notion of the conservation of energy or of mass-energy?

    Does energy conservation become a purely local property? And if so, how much volume can included in the "location"?
