Next generation large scale experiments will help understanding the nature of dark energy through the combination of weak lensing, redshift surveys, standard candles and cosmic microwave background. In this talk I review what we can expect from these observations and I discuss a number of loopholes in our description of the Universe that are still to be closed.
