Although classical physics would have it that energy may neither be created or destroyed, it's certainly the case that empty space is being created in abundance as the universe expands.
This empty space is something you can move through, although moving is something you can only do over time, so we should really talk about it being space-time. There was no time before the Big Bang expansion also created space – and from there the two have always gone together as a package.
