The energy (due to matter and fields including gravitation) of the Schwarzschild-de Sitter spacetime is investigated by using the Moller energy-momentum definition in both general relativity and teleparallel gravity. We found the same energy distribution for a given metric in both of these different gravitation theories. It is also independent of the teleparallel dimensionless coupling constant, which means that it is valid in any teleparallel model. Our results sustain that (a) the importance of the energy-momentum definitions in the evaluation of the energy distribution of a given spacetime and (b) the viewpoint of Lessner that the Moller energy-momentum complex is a powerfifi concept of energy and momentum.
