So even if cosmologists find a way to make it useful at the cosmic level (it is and always has been useful at the local level) Many Worlds can accommodate it, but at least at the present time Many Worlds doesn't have much of a use for the conservation of energy, nor does any the other theory that concerns fundamental cosmology.
