    They have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

    Dark matter is a form of "non-standard" matter that only interacts via gravity with other matter (and itself)

    Dark energy is the name given to the unknown force that causes the expansion of the universe to accelerate.

    You really should learn how to use Google.
