Recent Geometric Probe Data (SnIa, CMB, BAO) Expansion Rate of the Universe is very similar to the rate predicted by ΛCDM There are some puzzling conflicts between ΛCDM predictions and LSS cosmological observations Q: Is there a concrete physical model where dark energy can have significant clustering properties on small scales? Yes. This naturally occurs in Scalar-Tensor cosmologies due to the direct coupling of the scalar field perturbations to matter induced curvature perturbations Large Scale Velocity Flows (3σ) Galaxy and Cluster Halo Profiles (2σ-3σ) There is a potential resolution of these conflicts if Dark Energy had clustering properties.

Q: Is there a model with a similar expansion rate as ΛCDM but with significant clustering of dark energy? A: Yes. This naturally occurs in Scalar-Tensor cosmologies due to the direct coupling of the scalar field perturbations to matter induced curvature perturbations

Recent Geometric Probe Data (SnIa, CMB, BAO) are increasingly consistent with ΛCDM and with each other. The Constitution SnIa dataset is of the highest quality and is also the most consistent with ΛCDM and with Standard Rulers. Observed Cluster Halo Profiles are significantly more concentrated than predicted by ΛCDM. This may be interpreted as a trace of an additional clustering energy component in the halo. Scalar Tensor cosmologies are generic extensions of GR. They naturally allow for crossing of the w=-1 line and amplified dark energy perturbations on sub-Hubble scale by a factor of more than 10 4 compared to quintessence. This may help in the resolution of the cluster profile puzzle.
