Masahiro Hotta (Tohoku University, Japan) has come up with an exotic idea. Why 
not use the known quantum principles to teleport energy? The idea is not so 
simple and not so sound, but more or less this process of teleportation seems 
to involve making a measurement on one particle (of an entangled pair of 
particles), which would inject quantum energy into the system, then it seems to 
involve making a measurement on the second and distant particle (of the 
entangled pair), and this would extract the original energy, while retaining 
relativistic causality and conservation of energy.

No idea about this specific process of dr. Hotta. But it seems to me that the 
strange nature of quantum mechanical phenomena, and in particular quantum non-
locality and quantum non-separability, could be easily extended - at least 
heuristically - to different contexts (i.e. gravitational fields) to get new 
and relevant results (i.e. non-local gravitational fields). See i.e. Adrian 
Kent here http://arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/0507045
