Twistor by John G. Cramer uses multiple universes that only interact such that our gravity is the sum of all the universes mass. He is a university physics professor so the book is fairly hard SF.

Energy is not fuel. Uniform heat is energy but by definition not usable to perform work. You must have a heat gradient to use.
Whatever dark energy is, it seems only to effect enormous structures like galaxies and galaxy clusters.
But as technobabble, it's as good as anything.
